ADFAS Lecture An Ideal Partnership Luytens and Jekyll
ADFAS Lecture: "An Ideal Partnership: Luytens and Jekyll"19 Oct 2017
At UNE Arts A1 Theatre. TIME: 6.00pm. COST: $25, $130 (annual subscription for 10 lectures). For more information phone 02 6772 6441, or email adfasarmidale@bigpond.com. Mr James BOLTON (NASFAS) James Bolton is a garden designer and historian who set up his garden design business in 1992 following time spent with the Direction des Parcs et Jardins in Paris and two years as head gardener at the Old Rectory, Farnborough. Since then, he has been involved with a specialist perennial plant nursery and designed gardens throughout England, in the US and Portugal. The last two decades of the nineteenth century reverberated with the row amongst gardeners and architects. At a stroke, the problem was solved by the partnership between Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens, so that a house by Lutyens with a garden by Jekyll became an Edwardian ideal. Their partnership thrived in the brash, new-moneyed Edwardian era, but the First World War ended that golden afternoon. http://www.adfas.org.au/societies/new-south-wales-act/armidale
