A new exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in partnership with BNY Mellon, called Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse, is now open.

In the last of a weekly series of five videos, BNY Mellon’s EMEA Chairman Michael Cole-Fontayn interviews Ann Dumas, a curator at the Royal Academy and a specialist in French 19th century art.

Ann explores the relationship between Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet and why the Impressionists loved gardens.

The exhibition runs until April 20, 2016.
