Lancelot Capability Brown: Landscape, Art and Dame Nature
Lecturer: Twigs Way  
Lancelot Capability Brown rose to become the most famous landscape gardener in England. Working with the essential elements of contours, water and trees, he created landscapes so breathtakingly beautiful that the poet Whitehead commented that only Brown and Dame Nature could distinguish between his work and hers. Although a little late, we celebrate the 300th anniversary of his birth. We will consider his life and work and examine his aims and methods as well as the accolades and charges laid at the feet of 'England's Greatest Gardener'.
