An Earthly Paradise: Gardens in Art
A place of peace and tranquillity, a playground, or somewhere to nurture flowers and food, the garden represents many things to different people. An Earthly Paradise explores the diverse ways artists have represented these uniquely personal spaces in their work.
The exhibition sees the return of a major work to the city, Stanley Spencer’s Zacharias and Elizabeth (1913-14). The painting, co-owned with Tate, goes on display alongside highlights from Sheffield’s visual art and Ruskin collections, including paintings and works on paper by Paul Cézanne, James Tissot, Evelyn Dunbar and more.
