Gardening for Grandeur in 17th-Century France

Sun, 21 Sep, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Dr. Eric T. Haskell
Professor of French Studies & Interdisciplinary Humanities and Director, Clark Humanities Museum, Scripps College

This closing lecture in celebration of The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden will illuminate 17th-century French aesthetics as expressed in architecture, decorative arts, and landscape history. It will also articulate André Le Nôtre’s launching of the jardin à la française, contextualize the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden, define courtly culture, and demonstrate how the Sun King’s formal French landscape style was disseminated across Europe and to America for centuries to come.

Members free; non-members $20, seniors and students $17. Advance ticket purchase recommended.
