About the Author

John Dixon Hunt is Emeritus Professor of the History and Theory of Landscape, University of Pennsylvania. Among his numerous books are The Afterlife of Gardens and Garden and Grove: The Italian Renaissance Garden in the English Imagination, 1600-1750, both published by the University of Pennsylvania Press.


"John Dixon Hunt loves to be in gardens, as do many of us who design and build them. But Hunt brings to his visits a critical, informed eye that is founded on his background in literary and art history, and it is this difference that makes him so valuable to the field of landscape architecture."-Peter Walker and Jane Brown Gillette, from the Foreword
