For nearly 100 years, the Gardner Museum has been making of the most beautiful gardens in New England, keeping alive not only an extraordinary array of plant species, but also an excellent tradition of horticulture.
In May 1997, the Museum honored that tradition with the sixth annual interdisciplinary symposium on the subject of garden history, chaired by John Dixon Hunt, the editor of Studies in the History of Gardens and Designed Landscapes. The seven papers comprising this edition of the journal offer insights from across time and space, addressing topics ranging from Chinese garden and Roman domestic space to the femme ornee and the jardin pittoresque.
