Über diesen Titel:

Críticas: This is an utterly fresh and yet very disciplined account of Brown and his men . It will be an invaluable guide for readers who want to see a famous figure in contexts that extend their understanding of him. This is a book to reread, and a reference book that not just garden historians will want on their shelves, but historians of the eighteenth-century culture of England and its landscapes. --John Dixon Hunt, author of The Making of Place" This is a most enjoyable and important book. It is the first to assess Brown s landscape revolution within the context of its time and to analyze the contribution to the eighteenth-century landscape style of his proteges and rivals. It presents a rounded picture of the way these practitioners responded to the directions of patrons to create a new template for the landscaped park. It also acknowledges that this move towards a more open, minimalist style began with the work of Bridgeman and Kent, and argues convincingly that many other landscape styles, especially the geometric and the Rococo, hung on well into Brown s career and, indeed, were still being promoted after his death. All this analysis is set intelligently against the social, cultural, political, agrarian, and architectural developments in the period. I have no doubt that it will prove to be the most important book to come out on Brown during the tercentenary. --Timothy Mowl, University of Bristol" "This is an utterly fresh and yet very disciplined account of Brown and his 'men'. It will be an invaluable guide for readers who want to see a famous figure in contexts that extend their understanding of him. This is a book to reread, and a reference book that not just garden historians will want on their shelves, but historians of the eighteenth-century culture of England and its landscapes."--John Dixon Hunt, author of The Making of Place "This is a most enjoyable and important book.

Buchbeschreibung Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Zustand: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Lancelot 'Capability' Brown is often thought of as an innovative genius who single-handedly pioneered a new, 'naturalistic' style of landscape design. But he was only one of many landscape designers in Georgian England, albeit the most commercially successful. Published to tie in with the tercentenary of Brown's birth, Lancelot Brown and the Capability Men casts important new light on his world-renowned work, his eventful life and the business of landscape design in Georgian England.There is no evidence that Brown actually invented the style with which his name is now so closely associated - it was simply the style of the times. He was the head of a complex business that could supply clients with a whole design 'package', which included new greenhouses, kitchen gardens and land drainage schemes. This innovative book investigates the nature and organization of Brown's business, and draws insightful comparisons with similar providers of 'taste' such as the Adam brothers, Thomas Chippendale and Josiah Wedgwood. Illustrated with over 120 images, this beautiful book shows that Brown's style, like the organization of his business, was the product of a distinctly modern world.

Buchbeschreibung Reaktion Books, Limited. Hardback. Lancelot "Capability" Brown is often thought of as the innovative genius who single-handedly pioneered a new, naturalistic style of landscape design, but he was in fact only one of many landscape designers in Georgian England. Published to commemorate the three hundredth anniversary of Brown's birth, this book casts important new light on his world-renowned work, his eventful life, and the wider and robust world of landscape design in Georgian England. David Brown and Tom Williamson argue that Brown was one of the most successful designers of his time working in a style that was otherwise widespread--and that it was his skill with this style, and not his having invented it, that linked his name to it. The authors look closely at Brown's design business and the products he offered clients, showing that his design packages helped define the era's aesthetic. They compare Brown's business to those of similar designers such as the Adam brothers, Thomas Chippendale, and Josiah Wedgwood, and they contextualize Brown's work within the wider contexts of domestic planning and the rise of neoclassicism. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this book celebrates the work of a master designer who was both a product and harbinger of the modern world. 2016. First edition. A near fine copy only marked by a gift inscription to the front free endpaper and a previous owners bookplate to the front pastedown. The d/w is fine. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 7562064
