EXHIBITION

Transplanting the Renaissance: Italian Villa Gardens in America, 1900-1940
May-August 2018

These postcards illustrate the “informing spirit” of Italian Gardens as defined by Edith Wharton and Charles Platt: the garden as an extension of the house (above), as a transition into the surrounding landscape (here), and as an enjoyable space for the garden spectator (here).
