Description - The English Rococo Garden by Michael Symes
Rare, small, but perfectly formed, examples of this by-way of eighteenth century gardening are now immaculately restored and highly visited, but Painswick Rococo Garden is the most accessible and most feted of them all. In this book the author, champion of rcoco, details the designs, the buildings and the planting; he discusses overlapping styles such as Gothic, chinoiserie and rustic, and the main architects such as Sanderson Miller and Thomas Wright.
