This month, the program will be presented by Tish Robinson, a French scholar and owner of The Wonders of France. She specializes in the history of French gardens, the social history of the Age of Impressionism, Paris and the French Provinces
Monet captured in his art the leisure pursuits of gardening and horticulture. His many gardening influences will be explored – including his family’s luxurious gardens on the Normandy coast, and his private gardens in the legendary riverside towns of Argenteuil and Vetheuil. The artist’s greatest masterpiece, the unforgettable gardens at Giverny, will complete our study of Monet’s evolution as a gardener.
