Product description

Review

"Entertaining, provocative and stimulating... opens one's eyes afresh to Kent's all-round genius." (Spectator)

"[Mowl's] accounts of actual buildings and gardens are full of subjective intensity as well as subtle observations... Engrossing." (Guardian)

"Mowl has energy and cunning in spades, and he wisely takes the course of making the book more of an assessment of Kent's work and times than an attempt on his life... a glittering knockabout of a book." (Independent on Sunday)

"Provocative... We tend to admire what received opinion admires, whereas Mowl's book reverses the process, and healthily advises us to 'draw back from praising past culture simply because it happened.'" (Sunday Times)

"Engaging... I was reminded, above all, of Sacheverell Sitwell's evocations of the Baroque. Kent is as much a work of stylistic art. Mowl has a gift for putting his hero's concepts into prose." (Literary Review)

Book Description

Acclaimed biography of a fascinating, contradictory figure who was one of the greatest and most influential house and garden designers of all time.
