Description - Garden Sculpture by Michael Symes

Garden sculpture is an aspect of garden history that has not received a great deal of attention, particularly in Britain, and yet its impact in a garden can be considerable, adding an extra dimension and creating a fascination of its own. In this book the history of sculpture in British gardens is traced from Tudor times to the present day, showing the strong influence of Italy - both classical and Renaissance - and France. Materials and techniques are discussed and the work of the leading garden sculptors is described.
