This subject surveys the history of gardens from an art historical perspective from the medieval period to the present, with particular emphasis on the 18th to 20th centuries. Areas considered include the gardens of Islam and medieval European gardens, the gardens of Renaissance and baroque Italy, the French formal garden (Le Notre), the gardens of China, the English picturesque garden, 19th century gardens, the arts and crafts garden (Jekyll, Walling), and contemporary gardens in Australia and overseas. The subject examines garden architecture and design, the role of horticulture, the formal versus the informal garden, the garden as the site of the display of public power and private amusement, the social history of gardens, women and gardens, the spatial experience of gardens, the ways in which gardens are represented in art, and the garden as spectacle.
