This course will explore the multifarious ways in which the artist has impacted upon our understanding and perception of the British garden from the seventeenth century to the present day. Through a series of related but discrete talks, speakers will explore not only the ways in which artists depicted gardens but how so many of them were active as gardeners themselves, whether they were formulating grand landscape designs or cultivating private domestic spaces. The course will feature lectures from Christopher Woodward, Director of the Garden Museum, noted academics such as Joy Sleeman and Stephen Daniels, as well as landscape architect Todd Longstaff-Gowan. 

Registration for the course will open at 10AM on 20 August 2018. **Please note: you will need to register for each week individually. This is to ensure attendance does not drop. Apologies for the inconvenience.**
