Hamptons Gardens


by John Esten. Here's a chance to peak behind the high hedges to view the magnificent gardens of the Long Island Hampton area in this unusual compilation created for an exhibition at the Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton. A wide range of gardens is presented, from Sylvester Manor planted in 1653 to the inventive gardens of Alfonso Ossario and Robert Dash. In between, there are many stately grounds by well known landscape designers. The majority of the book is devoted to illustrating these gardens, with accompanying descriptive narrative. Many well known artists found their way to the Hamptons to paint these gardens and their work is beautifully reproduced here. There are also many photographs from the early 1900s along with new photographs by Evelene Wechsler. Hardcover 159pp PUB at $45.00
