“Gardening - Appreciation: Humphrey Repton and the Picturesque View details

This course will examine the next phase in the story of garden history in Britain, following the development of the landscape garden throughout the eighteenth century. Humphry Repton was the self appointed successor to Capability Brown, but his ideas and designs differed quite considerably and much of his success was due to his brilliant marketing tool of the 'Red Book'. The cult of the Picturesque was an important philosophical, as well as artistic phenomenon in the 1790s, often expressed through poetry and essays, and it had a direct influence on garden design. Once again, history, literature, landscape art and garden design combine to paint the picture of this fascinating subject.
