Publisher's description: In the eighteenth century, the English landscape garden became a major source of inspiration throughout Europe and Russia. It was not merely emulated but adapted to suit local conditions and contexts. In this lavishly illustrated book, Michael Symes describes how the landscape garden came to hold different significance in countries due to the differing geopolitical character, including a distinct divide between Catholics and Protestants. Over time, countries developed their own interpretations of the landscape garden that showcase the elements they held in high esteem. Chapters consider countries individually, including France, Germany, Russia, Poland, The Czech Republic, Sweden, Hungary and Italy, with a special chapter devoted to "Le Jardin Anglo-Chinois."
