Classic Gardens - The French Style

Description

This glorious book traces the evolution of the French formal style throughout Europe – Versailles (France), Peterhof (Russia), Quelez (Portugal), La Granja (Spain) – from the jardin clos of the Middle Ages to Renaissance gardens influenced by classical antiquity and, lastly, to gardens of breathtaking scale and engineering ingenuity at the 17th century's close. Through text, 190 wonderful photos (150 in colour) and detailed plans of 36 of Europe's most spectacular gardens, it reveals who commissioned these gardens, who designed them and who used them, providing an important historical context and luscious visual record of some of the world's most magical places.
