This catalog accompanied the 2010 Morgan exhibition Romantic Gardens: Nature, Art, and Landscape Design. In a lengthy introductory essay on the nature of Romanticism, the authors show, through drawings, designs, watercolors, and engravings, the course of Romanticism in Europe and in America, where the landscape ideals of the creators of private gardens were translated into the designs for public parks. Here, illustrated in full color and described in detail, are the books, the essays, the prints, and the manuscripts that served as core documents of the Romantic Movement.
