« back to classes page
Gardens are far from being simply gracious arrangements of plants, ornamenting cottages to stately homes. Gardens have moved from representations of Paradise to symbols of power to sources of one's pleasure. This talk will examine the religious, political, and social role that gardens and garden designs have played in Western culture, using the depictions of gardens in paintings as the examples, from the walls of ancient Roman villas to paintings by contemporary artists.
