A Timeless Fusion of Design and History
The world’s most renowned home of art and artifact curates a show to feature the great masters of Impressionism and their most documented muse, the garden. The exhibit’s intention is to tell the horticultural story that informed the development of 19th century French landscapes, both public and private, with their unmatched collection of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings depicting them.
The resulting design graces the ceremonial scale of the exhibit’s grand atrium entrance, while also delivering an unexpected parklike respite to all museum visitors. The micro climates and unique conditions were addressed in coordination with the client to confirm a precisely edited plant palette that inspires visitors with a timeless fusion of design and history. The paintings remain the star of the show, while the plantings amplify it with true scale reference and sensory engagement that truly delight each guest.
