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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'For a gardener it is a joy - ' - THE TIMES 'A tome so beautiful and appealing that even if you have no interest whatsoever in the subject matter, as an artist you will want to own it. The Garden in Art is not simply enticing because of the pictures, generously reproduced both in terms of size and clarity, but also because of how Debra N. Mancoff draws from such a variety of sources, in order to give a full account of how the garden has been depicted throughout the history of art. Mancoff writes with depth and enthusiasm on each image of the book.' - ARTISTS AND ILLUSTRATORS MAGAZINE 'This captivating and beautifully illustrated book will appeal to the armchair gardener and art lover alike.' - PERIOD HOMES AND INTERIORS MAGAZINE 'An expert in impressionism... Brief, intelligent essays... An added bonus is the list of suggested artists' gardens to visit at the end.' - ROYAL ACADEMY MAGAZINE 'I am going to relish this book and drink in every page' - VAL BOURNE, THE OXFORD TIMES 'Providing huge inspiration, The Garden in Art by Debra N. Mancoff - it is pure bliss!' - THE ENGLISH HOME
