The "picturesque" or "natural" garden was the rage in eighteenth-century Europe. This is the first book about that famous episode in garden history to look at the larger, European map of landscape design. Inspired by painting, it also reflected changing attitudes to nature. The book traces the rise of the picturesque garden in England, exploring intricate dialogues between practical place-making and the theoretical formulations of the picturesque that began with Alexander Pope and Joseph Addison and ended with the writings of William Gilpin, Uvedale Price, and Richard Payne Knight in the 1790s.
