About this book

Gardens are where man and nature meet. They change by the hour, from day to day and with the seasons. Presented with the many different aspects of the garden, both actual and imaginary, artists have been inspired to explore and celebrate the garden in ways that are unique to their culture and their time. This beautifully illustrated and highly readable book draws on the unparalleled holdings of the Royal Collection to investigate how artists and craftsmen, working across a range of media, have reflected our love affair with the garden from the sixteenth to the twentieth century.
