The Renaissance Garden in EnglandBook - 1979
The great formal gardens of Tudor and Stuart England are a lost art form, swept away in a wave of destruction by the later movement toward a more naturalistic landscape style. No examples survive of this era's beautifully sculpted grounds, and we are left only with inaccurate, romanticized reconstructions created in Victorian times. In this pioneering study, however, Roy Strong paints a vivid portrait of such legendary garden complexes as those of Henry VIII's Hampton Court, Lord Burghley's Theobalds, and Lord Pembroke's Wilton.
