This is a modern biography, full of facts about the life and works of William Kent. But it is gossipy and opinionated, a bit annoying in that way . There are lots of lively stories about his patrons and adversaries in that interesting period of the 18th Century. There are some relevant illustrations but these are not very well reproduced..

The paper gives a detailed overview of the work of one of the founders of the English landscape architecture, William Kent. The book has illustrations of his projects. Unfortunately, the paper quality is not the best, but the content of this work is interesting.

A brilliantly written account of a very full, but barely documented, life. Covers Kent's life a great detail, much better than the recent V&A exhibition. Lovely side comments of the life of the times and the development of the arts. Well worth the read
