Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

British gardens, from the historic to the most contemporary, have long been a source of inspiration for artists. The lovely works featured in "Art of the Garden</I> span three centuries and range in media from traditional watercolors and oils to digitally enhanced photography and installation art. Turner, Constable, Bacon, Freud, Hume, Quinn: all of these artists have, at some point, returned to this most beloved of subjects and explored it in their individual way. A unique mix of authors has contributed to the book, examining subjects as varied as the cross-fertilization between painting and design in the work of key garden designers and radical new takes on the garden in the work of contemporary artists. The book also features a gazetteer of artists' gardens, including those of James Tissot, Barbara Hepworth, Patrick Heron, Ian Hamilton Finlay, and Derek Jarman.

Synopsis:

England is known internationally as a nation of gardeners. This text explores our national obsession with all things horticultural and is illustrated with works by artists through the ages, from John Constable to Lucien Freud, J.M.W. Turner to Francis Bacon, and John Singer Sargeant to Derek Jarman.
