The great 20th century artists played an active, if sometimes private, part in the history of the modern garden.
From groups such as De Stijl and the arts and crafts movement, to the artist Le Corbusier, the sculptor Isamu Noguchi, the artist Paul Klee and the landscape artist Dan Kilet, major designers have been engaged in a quest for the perfect modern outdoor space.
This title researches the history of the modern garden and contains contemporary photographs of 12 modern gardens by two acclaimed garden and landscape photographers from Europe and America, Sofia Brignone and Alan Ward.
The book presents ideas and ideals to show how modern art and the private garden have merged with each other.
