Lancelot “Capability” Brown was one of the most influential landscape designers of the eighteenth-century. The extent and nature of his influence are, however, fiercely debated. Lack of primary material has hindered attempts to provide a rounded account of the man and his works. Capability Brown, Royal Gardener explores for the first time Brown’s business methods, working methods and European influence. Edited by Professor Jonathan Finch and Dr Jan Woudstra, it brings together a number of perspectives, and throws new light on Capability Brown and his impact on the business of place-making, not just in Britain but across Northern Europe.
