Over the past three decades, artist Christian Peltenburg-Brechneff has travelled around the world to visit some of the most glorious private gardens to paint en plein air. He has created a luscious visual record of 28 of them in this charming gift-sized book of watercolours and gouaches. With contacts among the international elite, the author has gained permission to enter some of the most exquisite and heretofore unrecorded gardens from Sri Lanka to Italy. With introductory texts by the distinguished art critic Donald Kuspit and the ever-influential interior architecture and garden designer Bunny Williams, Into the Garden chronicles this long-term pilgrimage of a visionary painter, opening the exquisite private gardens to the public for the very first time.

Every now and then a book comes along that speaks to me in an unexpected way. Into the Garden by artist Christian Peltenburg-Brechneff is just that kind of book... thing about this book that caught me off guard a bit is the bold, abstract quality of the images (and that I was so enchanted by them). Van Gogh comes to mind...this book captured my imagination...--Holly Sneeringer "Elegant Country Style "
...what Peltenburg-Brechneff offers in his paintings is the experience of being in gardens-the texture, style, and mood of each place...There's a confident playfulness on display throughout, like watching a jazz pianist let loose on a keyboard. Readers will hope the artist isn't finished going out on the road and into the garden just yet.--Flower Magazine
