Gardens of the Renaissance
Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

The history of the garden in the Renaissance, traced from the late fourteenth century in Italy to the death of André Le Nôtre in 1700 in France, is a story both of dynamism and codification. The period saw the emergence of what would become archetypal elements of the formal garden and the fixing of theory and language of the garden arts.

At the same time, newly important sciences, developments in engineering, as well as globalization, historicity, and theories of aesthetics were embraced in the construction of such gardens. The result was the notion of the landscape as something to be labored on, created, and delighted in, that ultimately would become a stage upon which Renaissance cultural politics played out.
