About this title:

Synopsis: A world-famous eighteenth-century British figure, Lancelot “Capability” Brown (1716-1783) is today considered the father of landscape architecture. Moving Heaven and Earth reveals the driven polymath behind the famous nickname, exploring both Brown’s artistic legacy and his pioneering work with water in the landscape. The book evaluates the rise of the English landscape garden in the context of his designs. It also provides a comprehensive guide for travelers, with an overview of the 250 sites throughout England and Wales attributed to or connected with Brown. Over 350 magnificent color photographs pin-point Brown’s enduring views and surprisingly vibrant planting palette, showcasing his enduring significance. This beautifully illustrated book makes a fitting tribute to an important historical figure.
