Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Within the walls of the demesne, the Anglo-Irish ascendancy constructed their vision of an Irish Utopia. Ideal landscapes were designed and planted out with standard temperate trees and newly introduced exotics from the Americas. Ideal cottages were built, paternalistic estate management structures developed, and complex planning and design theories indulged. Masques and plays, morally suspect in the strict Protestant ethos of the time, flourished within the enclosed world of the demesne. Robert Molesworth s radical Whig landscape influenced both Jonathan Swift and the Earl of Shaftesbury s political and aesthetic ideas. The women of Carton and Castletown employed the theatrical tradition of French gardens to explore controversial lifestyles. This book seeks to explore how and why the landscapes were designed, who designed them, who used them, and for what purpose. Detailed studies of selected and connected gardens were used to explore these questions, and the smaller compass is hopefully countered by a more detailed context. Some of the gardens recreated retain much valuable evidence on the ground, while others have been pieced together from documentary sources, in particular the copious personal letters which survive. The existing gardens themselves are constantly in flux, as the source material grows and dies, or is more commonly axed by development. The disciplines of art history, architecture, engineering and planning are hauled informally together, to examine the role these disciplines have played, and should play, in creating and protecting the designed environment.

Synopsis : A meticulously researched and stunning visual history of 18th century historic landscapes in and around the Dublin Pale.

Critique: "Astute ransacking of archives - instructions from distant proprietors, family correspondence, estate plans and workbooks - allows Finola O'Kane to open windows upon three exemplary Irish landscapes - Breckdenston, Castletown House and Frescati. In the process, the Irishness of estate developments is explored - the subtle or more aggressive manipulation of English trends, the studied internationalism of sources and resources for both landscape design and agrarian efficiency (the Netherlands, most obviously, but also America and revolutionary France). But the focus also comes to include, not just estate management and landscape aesthetics, but the role of women as designers, planters and stewards of property, the education of children in country matters, Irish tourism, country house entertainment, and how all these elements were marshaled in the interests of Irish identity and political status." --John Dixon Hunt, University of Pennsylvania

Description du livre Cork University Press, Cork, 2004. Hard Back. État : MINT. Etat de la jaquette : MINT. First Edition. A detailed original study of eighteenth-century landscapes in and around Dublin, of the gardens in the region, and of the aesthetic, political and economic factoprs which persuaded their owners to create them. Within the walls of the demesne, the Anglo-Irish ascendancy constructed their vision of an Irish Utopia. Ideal landscapes were designed and planted out with standard temperate trees and newly introduced exotics from the Americas. Ideal cottages were built, paternalistic estate management structures developed, and complex planning and design theories indulged. Masques and plays, morally suspect in the strict Protestant ethos of the time, flourished within the enclosed world of the demesne. Robert Molesworth's radical Whig landscape influenced both Jonathan Swift and the Earl of Shaftesbury's political and aesthetic ideas. The women of Carton and Castletown employed the theatrical tradition of French gardens to explore controversial lifestyles. This book seeks to explore how and why the landscapes were designed, who designed them, who used them, and for what purpose. Detailed studies of selected and connected gardens were used to explore these questions, and the smaller compass is hopefully countered by a more detailed context.Some of the gardens recreated retain much valuable evidence on the ground, while others have been pieced together from documentary sources, in particular the copious personal letters which survive.
