The world of André Le Nôtre by Thierry Mariage ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Gardens of Versailles - along with the name of their chief creator, Andre Le Notre - have become synonymous with the French style of "formal" garden. This style in its turn would succumb to another "national" mode, the English school of naturalistic and picturesque landscapes. But as Thierry Mariage makes clear in this detailed and lucid book, the garden style that Le Notre brought to perfection need not be seen in opposition to the later "English" one; rather, he claims, they represent two points along a continuum that exists between the natural and cultural worlds. He situates Le Notre's garden art in a complex social and cultural world, where the practices of land management, surveying techniques and hydrology, military practice, and both scientific and literary perspectives on land use and experience brought into being a unique form of landscape architecture. His analysis opens up the fashion in which design techniques and garden philosophy are shaped by material culture
