Rich in symbolism and metaphor, and blessed with its own varied and dramatic palette, the garden has proved to be an extremely fertile source of artistic inspiration. In The Garden in Art, acclaimed art historian Debra N. Mancoff reveals the many different ways in which artists from all periods of history – from ancient Egypt to the present day – have employed the motif of the garden.

Featuring more than 200 illustrations of both renowned and lesser-known works, the book approaches its subject thematically, exploring such topics as working gardens, the garden through the seasons and artists’ gardens.

Complete with a detailed timeline and a suggested list of gardens to visit, The Garden in Art is an absorbing and highly rewarding examination of the meaning and significance of the depiction of the garden, including:
- A major new study of the garden in art, including works by such artists as Botticelli, Hiroshige, Monet, Van Gogh and many others.
- Extended captions provide detailed interpretations of each work, as well as insights into the artists’ sources of inspiration and principal themes.
- A delightful and beautifully illustrated book that will appeal to the armchair gardener and art lover alike.
