Abstract

At first glance, the jardin anglais of 18th-century France appears to be composed of a standard set of pieces. A closer examination of specific gardens, however, reveals that the elements were often chosen to "fit" the garden to the patron, the garden thus being made into the means of projecting the self to others.
