"The Art of Scenery: A Tale of the Picturesque Garden in America" with John Tschirch, Architectural Historian

James Paine’s Roman Bridge of 1770 in Capability Brown’s Temple Wood, a pleasure garden created from 1765 at Weston Park, Shropshire
October 6, 2018 - 1:45pm2:45pm

Developed first in Britain by the capable hands of Lancelot “Capability” Brown, the English garden embraced the S-shaped path, known as the “line of beauty,” the irregular layout of plantings and long vistas through stretches of grass unencumbered by the formal gardens, rigidly planned flower beds and precisely clipped trees of previous centuries.

Garden Palaces in Glass: A History of Conservatories with John Tschirch, Architectural Historian

The cast iron Gothic Conservatory at Carlton House, London, ca. 1811
October 6, 2018 - 11:30am12:30pm

The history of conservatories: It is a story of taste, travel, and technology. By the mid-18th century, industrial technology produced the iron and glass necessary for the full-scale development of conservatories. Empress Josephine received the Tsar of all the Russias in her glass palace, where she exhibited the finest specimens of roses, orchids, palms, and other delicate blooms. The trend was followed by countless aristocrats and the newly minted millionaires of the 19th century each created conservatories to grace their estates.
