Description

The name Lancelot 'Capability' Brown has become synonymous with the eighteenth-century English landscape garden: between 1751 and 1783 his consultancy handled over 170 major commissions.

Holding the commercial monopoly on garden design well into the following century, Brown resisted the more rugged topography advocated by Richard Payne Knight's new generation of Romantics.
