A key design element since the first gardens were tilled, water has been managed into a surprising range of styles in symbolic and mythological themes, for private contemplation, and for large-scale displays of power and wealth. This book traces the history of fountains and describes key examples such as Moorish water gardens in Spain, Renaissance pleasure fountains, impressive schemes at Chatsworth and Vaux le Vicomte, and a wide range of contemporary cascades. More than 150 color illustrations depict these inspiring features.

About the Author:

Rosalind Hopwood is an art historian with a special interest in fountains and water features. After 20 years of teaching she gained a PhD with a thesis on the Origins of the Renaissance Figure Fountain, which involved extensive travel in Europe and traced the history of water features and the development of hydraulic technology. She has lectured on art and garden history for adult education courses in Glasgow and London, and contributed to the Courtauld Institute art and architecture website. Her first book was published in 2004 and covered water features from Roman times to the present day within the British Isles

Review:

A deep well of historical insight.
