The English Landscape Garden in Europe
'The landscape garden, embodying a naturalistic approach, was in tune with Enlightenment thought across Europe, where nature was a central preoccupation and motivator'. (From the preface.) In this illustrated study, Symes provides an overview of the extent to which the 18th-century English landscape garden spread throughout Europe and Russia. He considers each country individually, with a special chapter devoted to Le Jardin Anglo-Chinois, and examines gardens created 'in the English style' up to around 1850.
