PLEASE NOTE: This event has been rescheduled from its original date.  It will take place on February 23rd.

New horticultural imports, exciting technological innovations, controversies over color theory, patterns and lay-out all characterize this period. Owners and their head gardeners looked to former historical styles (especially Italian) while incorporating current Victorian pursuits and fashions. Majda Salvesen, garden history author and adjunct lecturer in the NYU Department of Art and Architecture History and Urban Studies, will examine these new variants and their influence on 21st-century garden design.

The Victorian Society New York sponsors a series of free lectures at The English Speaking Union, 144 E. 39th St., between Lexington and Third Avenues in Manhattan. No reservations are required. Attendees are invited to post-lecture receptions.
