About this title


Provides an analysis of the evolution of the formal French style of landscape architecture during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, complemented by illustrations of the great gardens of Versailles, the Tuileries, Chantilly, and Fontainebleau

From Library Journal:

Woodbridge, noted garden historian, presents a well-researched study of the great 17th and 18th century French gardensincredible labors of art, creativity, and devotionmany of which no longer exist. He not only delineates the gardens' historical background in detailtheir purposes, social results, architects, and commissionersbut also shows their creation step-by-step with extensive illustrations and contemporary photographs. This scholarly work offers both an excellent social history of the changing pattern of the park and garden of those times and a noteworthy celebration of the lost art of the great French garden. Highly recommended for subject collections, it will also appeal to the Francophile. Daniel S. Kalk, Enfield Central Lib., Ct.
