A Celebration Of Humphrey Repton – Part 1



Lecture date: 2003-11-22

A Garden History Society conference on landscape designer Humphry Repton. A series of commissions led Repton to publish a book of Sketches and Hints on Landscape Gardening in 1795. Like his later books this drew upon the Red Books he had produced for clients which laid out recommendations for their estates using his ingenious ‘before and after’ sketches.
