9780754630302: Sculpture And the Garden (Subject/Object: New Studies in Sculpture)

Although the integration of sculpture in gardens is part of a long tradition dating back at least to antiquity, the sculptures themselves are often overlooked, both in the history of art and in the history of the garden. This collection of essays considers the changing relationship between sculpture and gardens over the last three centuries, focusing on four British archetypes: the Georgian landscape garden, the Victorian urban park, the outdoor spaces of twentieth-century modernism and the late-twentieth-century sculpture park. Through a series of case studies exploring the contemporaneous audiences of gardens, the book uncovers the social, political and gendered messages revealed by sculpture's placement and suggests that the garden can itself be read as a sculptural landscape.

About the Author:

Patrick Eyres is editor of the New Arcadian Journal, UK.

Fiona Russell is a freelance writer and editor.

Review:

' ... recommended to anyone with a serious interest in gardens, parks, outdoor sculptures, and the interaction of people with all three'. The Art Book 2007 'Attractive in appearance, with beautifully composed colour photographs by Geoffrey James and copious black and white illustrations, the book also benefits from the superb overview drawings by Chris Broughton...as so little is written on sculpture and the garden this publication, with its wide range of themes, should have something to say to anyone interested in the ways in which the role of sculpture in the landscape has changed in the past three hundred years.' Follies Magazine
