Product Information

Cecil Ross Pinsent was responsible for the design and construction of new villas and gardens such as La Foce, and the renovation of historically sensitive ones, including Villa I Tatti, Villa Le Balze and Villa Medici

Edith Wharton sought his advice; Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson were influenced by him; Geoffrey Scott dedicated The Architecture of Humanism to him; and Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe regarded him as his "first maestro on the placing of buildings in the landscape"

Bringing to light Pinsent's contribution to garden design, this book is illustrated with photographs from his unpublished albums, architectural drawings and sketches and his letters to family friends and clients
