In the spring we opened Sanctuary: Artist-Gardeners 1919 – 39, an exhibition in partnership with Liss-Llewellyn. It told the story of how in the period between the wars an exceptional number of British artists turned to gardens as inspirations to their work. Gardens were also personal sanctuaries: many, but not all, had experienced the First World War.
Lockdown cut short Sanctuary but it was so popular when transferred to our website that Liss Llewellyn have curated a second exhibition on the theme: this exhibition, I underline, is on-line only.
The works are for you to enjoy browsing on your screen. But if you want to buy a picture, a commission of up to 50% goes directly to the Museum, at a time when our survival depends on donations by Friends and followers.
