In January 2016, the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in partnership with BNY Mellon, will present Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse, a major exhibition examining the role of gardens in the paintings of Claude Monet and his contemporaries.

The exhibition will run from January 30 – April 20, 2016.

With Monet as the starting point, the exhibition will span the early 1860s to the 1920s, a period of tremendous social change and innovation in the arts.

The show will include Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Avant-Garde artists of the early twentieth century.

It will bring together over 120 works from public institutions and private collections across Europe and the USA, including 35 paintings by Monet.

“Supporting the arts is deeply stitched into the fabric of BNY Mellon’s heritage and we have enjoyed a very special partnership with the Royal Academy since 2007,” said Michael Cole-Fontayn, EMEA Chairman, BNY Mellon.

“We are thrilled to be involved in bringing this exciting new exhibition, Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse, to London in the New Year.”
