The White House is the most famous house in the world – yet its 18 acres of perfectly manicured grounds and magnificent gardens, much beloved by the Presidents and their families, are rarely seen by the public. This book is a horticultural celebration of all the Presidents' gardens, beginning with George Washington's beloved Mount Vernon and looking at the development of White House gardens over two centuries. Rare photographs perfectly illustrate highlights from the best of the presidential gardens, including Jackie Kennedy's Rose Garden, the Roosevelt wartime White House greenhouses and Michelle Obama's sustainability-inspired vegetable garden, which now produces food that is served to the First Family. The text is peppered with lively comments and useful tips from gardeners who contributed to White House beautification projects under many different Administrations.

This is the latest volume in a major series that describes selections of the rare books, manuscripts, and other works of art held at Oak Spring Garden Library, a collection formed by Rachel Lambert Mellon. The 111 items chosen for this volume on floral illustration since the later Middle Ages include Books of Hours, still-life and vanitas paintings, botanical prints, and books of instruction of every kind, from planting a garden to making flowers using colored papers or wax. Lucia Tongiorgi Tomasi groups the works into chapters on such topics as florilegia, women artists, tulipomania, Dutch and Flemish painting, and exotic flowers from distant lands, providing an introduction to each chapter that gives the contextual background necessary for a real understanding and appreciation of floral illustration past and present. The sheer beauty as well as extraordinary skills encountered, for example, in manuscript florilegia by Jacob Marrel and Maria Sibylla Merian, in hand-colored books by Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues and G.B. Ferrari, and in flower studies painted by John Constable, Margaret Mee, and others, are testament to the high status accorded floral illustration over the centuries. This handsome, richly illustrated volume will attract all those with an interest in rare

Das Feld der Botanik erscheint prädestiniert für eine Auseinandersetzung sowohl von Seiten der Künste als auch der Naturwissenschaften. In der Frühen Neuzeit waren jene beiden Bereiche oft untrennbar miteinander verbunden, wie die vorliegende Studie am Beispiel der Sammlungsinteressen und Protektionspraktiken Cosimo III. de‘ Medicis nachzeichnet. Gärten, Gemäldesammlungen und Pflanzenkataloge sowie die Karrieren und Netzwerke des Malers Bartolomeo Bimbi und des Botanikers Pier Antonio Micheli bilden den Ausgangspunkt der Analysen. Auf Basis zahlreicher oft noch unveröffentlichter Bild- und Textquellen wird ein differenziertes Panorama botanischer Pracht und Gelehrsamkeit zur Zeit der ‚ultimi Medici‘ entworfen, wobei wiederholt die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen großherzoglicher Patronage hinterfragt werden.
The Sensuous in the Counter-Reformation Church

Type: BOOK - Published: 2013-07-22 - Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book examines the promotion of the sensuous as part of religious experience in the Roman Catholic Church of the early modern period. During the Counter-Reformation, every aspect of religious and devotional practice was reviewed, including the role of art and architecture, and the invocation of the five senses to incite devotion became a hotly contested topic. The Protestants condemned the material cult of veneration of relics and images, rejecting the importance of emotion and the senses and instead promoting the power of reason in receiving the Word of God. After much debate, the Church concluded that the senses are necessary to appreciate the sublime, and that they derive from the Holy Spirit. As part of its attempt to win back the faithful, the Church embraced the sensuous and promoted the use of images, relics, liturgy, processions, music, and theater as important parts of religious experience.
