Summary Summary: For the first time, texts and photographs present an overall view of all the Prussian gardens and parks in Berlin, Potsdam and elsewhere in Brandenburg created under the Hohenzollerns over a period of more than three centuries. Only the cross-genre collaborative effort of garden designers, gardeners, architects, scenographers, sculptors, painters, and creative rulers, made it possible to turn the environs of Berlin and Potsdam step by step into a garden±, as Frederick William IV put it in 1840. Figures such as David Garmatter, Friedrich Christian Glume, Simé́on Godeau, Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff, Peter Joseph Lenné, Antoine Pesne, Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau, Georg Potente, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the Sello brothers, and Antoine Watteau - picked artistic forces that created the Prussian garden realm. The present volume is an attempt to approach the ideas forming the basis of the high standard of princely landscape art.
