Brown's Landscape Trees
A botanical illustration in celebration of the late English landscape architect of the 18th Century, Lancelot Brown. More commonly known as 'Capabilty Brown', he was one of the most influential gardeners of his time, designing over 170 gardens that surrounded the finest country houses and estates in Britain.
Showing specimens collected from Stamner Park from a range of shrubs and trees, such as sycamore and pine leaves, the finished piece was on display as part of the 'Growing Success - Botanical Art by Leigh Ann Gale and her students' exhibition at Horsham Museum in February 2016.
This exhibition featured alongside the 'Capabilty Brown's Lost Sussex Garden - Hills of Horsham', which documented Brown's original landscape plans for Hills, rediscovered after experts thought that the plans had been long lost.
