Gertrude Jekyll was one of the most important garden designers and plantswomen of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, creating over 350 gardens in Britain, Europe and the United States. A prolific writer, she had a special relationship with Country Life through her books, articles, and gardens designed in collaboration with Sir Edwin Lutyens. She also designed four gardens for the founder and proprietor of the magazine, Edward Hudson. As a result, the Country Life archive has an unrivalled record of her work. This volume celebrates Jekyll s impact on garden design through her own work and her collaborations with Lutyens and other Arts and Crafts architects such as Harold Peto, William Robinson, Oswald Milne and Inigo Triggs. Beautifully illustrated throughout it contains rarely seen images of Jekyll s work, including 1912 autochromes of her own garden at Munstead Wood, her and paintings by artists such as Henry Moon s depiction of Gravetye Manor. In addition to covering all of Jekyll s iconic gardens the book also discusses her place in the Arts and Crafts movement, and her friendships not just with other designers and architects but with influential artists such as William Morris and Helen Allingham.Biographie de l'auteur :
