    Title: Humphry Repton & the Art of Ornamental Gardening

    Description: Talk by:

    Prof. Tim Mowl
    Emeritus Prof. of History of Architecture & Designed Landscapes, University of Bristol

    Timothy Mowl’s lavishly illustrated lecture, conceived to celebrate the bicentenary of the landscape gardener Humphry Repton, will focus upon Repton’s brilliant sales gimmick of his Red Books and chart the development of Ornamental Gardening in the Regency through his chequered career as a practitioner of designed landscapes.
    After a decade writing books on architectural history, in 2000 Timothy Mowl published Gentlemen & Players: Gardeners of the English Landscape; he then embarked upon a nationwide series of the historic gardens of England, county by county. Hampshire (published 2016) is the latest in the series. Professor Mowl has also written biographical studies of John Wood of Bath, Horace Walpole, William Beckford and William Kent.

    Students/Members £2, Visitors £4
