Le nôtre and his gardens

The creator of the Versailles' gardens

Thursday, May 17h at 5.30PM
 at AFC @ cSPACE.

‘Tis the time of year to turn our thoughts and our eyes to the pleasures and beauty of gardens. In this presentation, we will explore the seventeenth-century life, work and legacy of one of the greatest French landscape architects, André le Nôtre. Le Nôtre is best known for his masterpiece, the gardens of Versailles, created for Louis XIV, but he designed numerous other gardens and his influence was far-reaching. Join our presenter, Lori Marquardson, a Francophile who loves to garden, read about garden history and visit gardens as often as possible, for this one-hour stroll through history and gardens à la française.

The presentation will be in English. This is a FREE activity.
