‘Genius’, ‘master’, ‘pre-eminent’ – these are terms used by experts to describe Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, the eighteenth-century landscape designer who wrought a garden revolution in England. For 150 years his activities as a garden designer and architect were largely unrecorded but in recent years a new and vivid interest has arisen in his work. The tale of the garden-boy who rose to fame, riches and friendship of the king is remarkable in itself and some of his splendid achievements are still available for public appreciation. About the author Joan Clifford is a full-time author with varied interests, specialising as a biographer.
