*Rococo Revisited
Compton Verney

The grounds of Compton Verney Gallery, Warwickshire,  landscaped by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown from 1768-1774. The large cedar tree on the right is a Cedar of Lebanon from the mid eighteenth-century.
Lancelot Brown (1716 –  1783), more commonly known as Capability Brown, was an English landscape architect. He is remembered as “the last of the great English eighteenth-century artists to be accorded his due”, and “England’s greatest gardener”. He designed over 170 parks, many of which still endure.
