Gardens of China
Osvald Siren
The Ronald Press Co., 1949

First Edition. Coming from an academic background in Chinese art, Siren has delivered what has been acclaimed as the most outstanding study on the Chinese garden. He traces the Chinese garden as a work of art in forms of nature, the mountains, rivers, and trees. The architectural elements of the gardens, in literature, painting and older gardens in Japan. Illustrating some private gardens, the parks of the Sea Palaces, Yuan Ming Yuan, and the New Summer Palace and the park of the Jade Fountain are all covered in great detail. By and large a valuable integrated study, covering the artistic and intellectual aspects of gardens and garden art history. From the estate of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
