Description
From cultural seeds planted in the 17th century, the Romantic Movement became the ascendant philosophical and aesthetic ethos of the 19th century. It eschewed classicism's deference to order, rationality, and regulation to give primacy to the imagination and the senses, to intuition and inspiration, and it celebrated the spectacular, the mysterious, and the dramatic. Minutely examined in the genres of music, literature, and art, the influence of romanticism on the garden is at last surveyed in this visual history, based on an exhibit at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York City. Among the 85 beautifully illustrated entries are Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey," followed by his plan for a winter garden at Coleorton Hall in Leicestershire; a number of garden landscape prints by August Schirmer; and plans and engravings for Central Park from Frederick Law Olmstead.
