NATURE OVER AGAIN - THE GARDEN ART OF IAN HAMILTON FINLAY

IAN HAMILTON FINLAY (1925-2006)

'Dixon Hunt is a sensitive guide, alighting on often complex and intertwined themes while lending Finlay's garden art a seriousness that seems to elude some art historians. Keeping the reader attuned to poetry in art and nature, it's a book that will appeal equally to fans of Finlay and ardent horticulturists.' - Time Out

Though Ian Hamilton Finlay’s (1925–2006) work Little Sparta is, according to Sir Roy Strong, ‘the most important garden made in Britain since 1945’, his influence – and work – is found worldwide. Nature Over Again reveals the story behind the majority of Finlay’s renowned garden installations, and is the first study to examine his garden designs and ‘interventions’ in a consequential way.

An accomplished Scottish poet, writer, artist and gardener, Finlay infused his garden designs with a distinct aesthetic philosophy and poetic sensibility. John Dixon Hunt situates his analysis of Finlay’s gardens in the context of that broader philosophy and poetic work, drawing on Finlay’s books, prints and other written reflections about the art and practice of garden design. From the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart to the Serpentine Gallery in London to the University of California at San Diego campus, the book documents how Finlay built an oeuvre of international renown, and ultimately argues that Finlay’s innovations are best understood in the context of the long tradition of European gardens. 

John Dixon Hunt is Professor of the History and Theory of Landscape at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of many books, including Greater Perfections: The Practice of Garden Theory (2000), The Picturesque Garden in Europe (2002), and The Afterlife of Gardens (Reaktion Books, 2004).
