Claude Monet once remarked “The richness I achieve comes from nature, the source of my inspiration”. My recent visit to the outstanding exhibition “Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse” at the Royal Academy of Arts in London illustrated this and inspired me in turn to curate this exhibition along similar lines. Our own masters in the art of “en plein air” capture, with their dazzling creativity and skill, the exquisite forms, colours and lights presented to them by nature.

Many of the paintings we have collated together for your enjoyment are very much aligned with Monet’s sentiments. Stunning French landscapes, beautiful depictions of birds and animals in sculpture, watercolour and oil are distinctive for their spontaneity and expression. The artists’ mesmerizing paintings capture the colours and atmosphere of the great outdoors, immortalizing the changing seasons, weather and light, to leave a lasting impression.

In this catalogue we see artists and sculptors confront their most rigorous challenge: to capture quickly the brilliant and fluid visual sensation of natural light and form at a specific time and place while facing the formidable constraint of fleeting light or moving creature. Peinture sur le motif , Painting what the eye actually sees, creates intrigue that we all enjoy as we allow ourselves to get lost in another world of beauty.
