Prussian Gardens.
Schoene, Katja and Hillert Ibbeken.
Prussian Gardens.
For the first time, texts and photographs present an overall view of all the Prussian gardens and parks in Berlin, Potsdam and elsewhere in Brandenburg created under the Hohenzollerns over a period of more than three centuries. Only the cross-genre collaborative effort of garden designers, gardeners, architects, scenographers, sculptors, painters, and creative rulers, made it possible to turn the environs of Berlin and Potsdam [...] step by step into a garden", as Frederick William IV put it in 1840. Figures such as David Garmatter, Friedrich Christian Glume, Simeon Godeau, Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff, Peter Joseph Lenne, Antoine Pesne, Prince Hermann von Puckler-Muskau, Georg Potente, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the Sello brothers, and Antoine Watteau - picked artistic forces that created the Prussian garden realm. The present volume is an attempt to approach the ideas forming the basis of the high standard of princely landscape art.
