British gardens—from the historic to the most contemporary—have long been a source of inspiration for artists. The lovely works featured in Art of the Garden span three centuries and range in media from traditional watercolors and oils to digitally enhanced photography and installation art. Turner, Constable, Bacon, Freud, Hume, Quinn: all of these artists have, at some point, returned to this most beloved of subjects and explored it in their individual way.
