Gardens and landscape art

N.B. This course is taught in Dutch.
 
In this Gardens and Landscape Art course, we will take a green walk through the development of gardens and landscape design in six lessons. Architecture, painting, sculpture and garden design have related to each other in different ways over the past centuries and served as a mutual source of inspiration. Think garden architecture, landscape gardens, but also Land Art and sculpture ín a garden. We go from medieval paradise gardens to Baroque gardens, the (English) landscape park and Claude Monet's gardens. In the 20th century, modern artists even went a step further with Land Art such as the Spiral Jetty by Robert Smithson (1970) and the impressive Birds Nest by artist Nils-Udo (2005). By the end of this course, you will know the background and characteristics of different gardens and garden art to enrich and inspire any garden visits.
