The Artist and the Garden, Paperback / softback Book

The Artist and the Garden Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Roy Strong's next book The Elizabethan Image explores the Elizabethan aesthetic and its success, and will be published by Yale University Press in June 2019 This extraordinarily beautiful book gathers together and examines for the first time a delightful collection of English gardens rendered by artists from 1540 to the early nineteenth century, many of which are unknown.

Sir Roy Strong, widely recognised for his expertise in both art history and garden history, surveys garden pictures ranging from Elizabethan miniatures to eighteenth-century alfresco conversation pieces, from suites of paintings of a single garden to amateur watercolours.

He inquires into the origin of the English garden picture genre, its development prior to the invention of photography, its greatest exponents, its reliability as historical evidence of actual gardens, and its place within the larger European tradition of picturing the garden.
