Commissioned by Louis XIV, Andre le Notre designed a timeless garden of magnificent proportions. Widely admired and imitated throughout Europe, 300 years after its creation the garden at Versailles remains the quintessential jardin a la francaise. The son of a gardener, le Notre studied practical geometry as well as theories of space and perspective, both of which he used to advantage in his rigorous design. Unparalleled in his ability to tame nature, le Notre shaped the existing landscape to fit his uncompromising ideas of symmetry, structure, and beauty. This book is a celebration of le Notre's triumph, beautifully illustrated with previously unpublished plans.
