Summary
One of the most remarkable men of the 18th century, Lancelot 'Capability' Brown was known to many as 'The Omnipotent Magician' who could transform unpromising countryside into beautiful parks that seemed to be only the work of nature. His list of clients included half the House of Lords, six Prime Ministers, and even royalty. Although his fame has dimmed, we still enjoy many of his works today at National Trust properties such as Croome Park, Petworth, Berrington, Stowe, Wimpole, Blenheim Palace, Highclere Castle (location of the ITV series 'Downton Abbey'), and many more. In this book, author and garden historian Sarah Rutherford tells his triumphant story, uncovers his aims, and reveals why he was so successful
