Repton Revived: The Landscape Gardener’s Legacy and Influence

  • 31 January 2019
  • 10:00 – 6:30 pm

The current Garden Museum exhibition Repton Revealed: The Art of Landscape Gardeningcommemorates the bicentenary of Repton’s death, with a focus on his Red Books of designs.

This symposium 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. It invites contributions 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.
