The Artist’s Garden tells the intertwining stories of American Impressionism and The Garden Movement which flourished between 1887–1920. Both movements responded to rapid social change brought about by America’s industrialisation. With increasing urbanisation prompting the emerging middle-class to seek refuge in the suburbs, they began to spend their free time and wealth cultivating impressive private gardens.
Using forensic document examination and professional testimony, this film sets out to prove that Anna Magdalena Bach, the second wife of Johann Sebastian Bach, was the composer - or joint composer - of some of his most famous works.
