EXHIBITION

Transplanting the Renaissance: Italian Villa Gardens in America, 1900-1940
May-August 2018

These side-by-side cards (compare to this) provide a visual representation of how both individual elements (fountains, arbors, statues, and terraces) and the broader principles of Italian garden design were translated into an American context. The American gardens retain the classical formality without re-creating the decay and overgrowth of the older Italian models, allowing tradition and modernization to coexist.
