Event: Gardens of the Roman World - The Getty Villa

Lectures and Conferences

Gardens of the Roman World
Thursday May 18, 2006
8 pm
Auditorium, Getty Villa

Patrick Bowe, noted expert on garden history and author of Gardens of the Roman World, will examine the ancient Roman obsession with gardens, which were cultivated throughout the empire, from Britain to North Africa and from Portugal to Asia Minor. Using as evidence actual gardens excavated at Pompeii and other ancient sites, he will discuss the intimate and accessible aspects of Roman gardening, including such details as fountains, statuary, trelliswork, and plantings, which are still reflected in city, suburban, and country gardens today.

Reservations available beginning April 25.
