Capability Brown and the English Landscape
Landscape architect Capability Brown refused a fee of £1,000 to work in Ireland because "he had not yet finished England". His work was the height of 18th century fashion - he transformed over 170 country estates from formal gardens & farmland to naturalistic parks complete with lakes - and his legacy is with us to the present day.
In this beautifully illustrated lecture, design historian, lecturer & garden designer James Bolton explores how Brown's grand projects became possible, his influences & engineering, his popularity with the aristocracy and his legacy today.
