Camille Leprince: "Baroque Faience in André Le Nôtre’s Gardens"
Camille Leprince, art historian
André Le Nôtre mastered the art of the Jardin à la française during the reign of Louis XIV, creating gardens for many of the king’s palaces. While his work has been largely studied and extensively published, the display of ceramics in his gardens has been overlooked. This lecture looks at the exceptional wares produced in France at this time and how Le Nôtre incorporated their display into his garden designs.
