In the Garden takes a focused look at the work she produced between 1980 and 1983, a series now referred to as her In the Garden pieces. The genesis of In the Garden was Bartlett’s year spent at a friend’s villa in Nice, France. Initially disappointed with the grey weather and the run-down house, she channeled her energy into working with what she had—a small backyard with a pool, a dense line of cypresses, and a small sculpture of a boy urinating into the water. The ultimate result was a group of almost 200 drawings of the same scene, in a dizzying range of styles and executed in ten mediums, from pointillism in colored pencil to impressionistic pastels and Matisse-like gouaches.
