He was the toast of his day, but how has Humphry Repton’s legacy lasted over the past two centuries?
Tickets are now on sale for the symposium Repton Revived: The Landscape Gardener's Legacy and Influence, taking place at the Garden Museum in London on 31 January 2019.
This symposium builds on the current exhibition Repton Revealed: The Art of Landscape Gardening but takes a longer and wider view, to explore how Repton and his work have been variously recalled, restored and refashioned in the two centuries from the nineteenth century to the present. Contributors will reflect on the legacy of Repton’s landscape gardening within and beyond Britain, on the page and on the ground, in changing methods and media of design and historical interpretation.
Speakers include: Dan Marriott (Department of Landscape Architecture, Pennsylvania State University), Kristof G Fatsar(Course Leader in Landscape Architecture, Kingston School of Art), Jonathan Hill (The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL), Jane Bradney (independent garden historian).
Ticket price includes lunch and refreshments. A wine reception will follow the symposium at 5pm.
