LECTURE: The 18th Century English Landscape Garden as a Work of Art
Wednesday, 19th July at 11.00am. Painshill
Long-standing volunteer and guide, Bill Tomlins, will explore the ideas that promoted the new naturalistic style of gardening that emerged during the eighteenth century. He will compare this to earlier gardening styles and the influence from prose, poetry and art that were then reflected in the landscape at Painshill.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Painshill and the influences that surrounded the creation of this historic landscape.
The Lecture is free but ADVANCED BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL http://www.painshill.co.uk/the-18th-century-english-landscape-garden-as-a-work-of-art__trashed/
