SANCTUARY: Artist-Gardeners 1919-39

Many of the artists in this catalogue had a particularly strong attachment to gardens and gardening ñ taking their activities as plantsmen and plantswomen as seriously as they took their art. Charles Mahoney shared his unbridled enthusiasm for plants with Edward Bawden, Geoffrey Rhoades, John Nash and Evelyn Dunbar who swapped cuttings with each other by post. Evelyn Dunbar, along with Charles Mahoney and John Nash, produced
books on the subject. And most of Harry Bushís oeuvre evolved around painting and repainting his garden in the London suburbs of SW19.
