Über den Autor: SIR ROY STRONG is well-known as an historian and garden writer, lecturer, critic, columnist and regular contributor to both radio and television. He was Director of the National Portrait Gallery from 1967-73 and of the V&A from 1974-87. In 1980 he was awarded the prestigious Shakespeare Prize by the FVS Foundation of Hamburg in recognition of his contribution to the arts in the UK. Among the public committees on which he has served are the Arts Council (as Chairman of the Art department) and the South Bank Board (as Deputy Chairman), and in 2000 he became High Bailiff and Searcher of the Sanctuary of Westminster Abbey and President of the Garden History Society. His gardening books include A Celebration of Gardening, Creating Small Gardens, A Small Garden Designer's Handbook, Creating Small Formal Gardens, Small Period Gardens, Royal Gardens, Garden Party, The Artist and the Garden and Ornament in the Small Garden. Other recent publications are The Story of Britain, his own diaries and The Spirit of Britain.
