What is more inviting than sunny gardens withy bright colors and the many scents of flowers? And who captured this better than the Impressionists with their images full of color and light? The perfect combination of nature and culture , somewhere between landscapes and scenes from the private sphere, Impressionists gardens combine vitality and sensuality in a very modern way.
There was a turn towards the depiction of nature from the beginning of the 19th century, especially in Northern European painting. The landscapes of John Constable and Willian Turner, particularly their observation of natural phenomena such as clouds, atmosphere, and lighting effect in the landscape, influenced the Impressionists. Their loose painting style and use of color was also inspired by the work of Eugene Delacroix.
