Bicentenary” by Prof. Stephen Daniels

2018 marks the bicentenary of the death of Humphry Repton. The most celebrated
landscape gardener of later Georgian England had a wide ranging practice but
maintained an emotional commitment to his native county of Norfolk, particularly
the area around Aylsham where he had strong family connections, and where he and
his wife are buried. This presentation considers various ways Repton has been
interpreted and commemorated, in different approaches to what he called ‘the art
of landscape gardening’, including revisiting some issues set out in the
speaker’s publications over the last thirty years.

Stephen Daniels is Professor of Cultural Geography at the University of
Nottingham (More info) and a
Fellow of the British Academy. He is the author of a number of works on the
landscape arts, including Humphry Repton: Landscape Gardening and the Geography
of Georgian England
