By Lucia Impelluso
Gardens in Art analyzes the constituent elements of gardens, both real and imagined, and uncovers their often-hidden symbolic meanings. Paintings provide a continuous visual record of the myriad ephemeral forms of gardens, and in the nearly four hundred works presented here, drawn from important Western museums, subtle lines are used to point out salient details in the paintings for close examination by the reader.
