Join renowned author and landscape historian Judith Tankard for a visual journey through one of the most iconic eras in garden design. Drawing from the newly revised edition of her classic Gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement, Tankard will discuss the important principles of garden design in the early 1900s and explore the role these gardens played in the visual arts, including examples from the BMA’s own collection. Prior to the talk, please join us for complimentary drinks outdoors in the Red Mountain Garden Club Memorial Garden. A book signing will follow the lecture.
Judith B. Tankard received an M.A. in Art History from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and taught at the Landscape Institute, Harvard University for 20 years. She is the author of 10 books on landscape history.
