William Adam and Formal Landscape Design in Scotland 1720-1745

12th March, 2018
St Andrew's and St George's, 13 George Street, Edinburgh

In his book, The Landscape Garden in Scotland, Professor Alan Tait explores how William Adamís garden designs looked forward to the picturesque informality of the mid- and late-18th-century landscape garden. This lecture looks backwards to investigate how Adamís garden designs related to contemporary and earlier fashions in Scottish and English garden design. Speaker Louisa Humm studied History of Art at St Andrews University and is a senior casework officer at Historic Environment Scotland.
