Stowe on a Stamp

18 January 2021

‘Capability’ Brown is remembered as ‘the last of the great 18th century artists’ and England’s greatest Gardner. Brown changed the face of eighteenth century England, designing country estates and mansions, moving hills and making flowing lakes and serpentine rivers, a magical world of green. Celebrated for landscape on an immense scale, creating entire vistas not only gardens and parkland – it is often said that the images Brown created are as deeply embedded in the English character as the paintings of Turner and the poetry of Wordsworth.
