This online exhibition offers an overview of Paul Arsenault’s garden-inspired paintings, his introduction to the Florida landscape, and his ongoing connection to Naples Botanical Garden.

Contemporary impressionist artist Paul Arsenault has long held a fascination with gardens, which he has been painting for decades. The Impressionist’s Garden celebrates Arsenault’s love and passion for the Garden and the natural world by bringing together a selection of his original artwork featuring our 170-acre tropical paradise, as well as a few other Florida gardens.
