About the Author

Anna O. Marley is Curator of Historical American Art at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and editor of Henry Ossawa Tanner: Modern Spirit.


"An intellectual and visual delight with an impressive scholarly content, this is an important addition to the history of American art, American gardens, and American self-image at the turn of the 19th century."-Library Journal

"Here finally is the definitive work tracing the reciprocal influences of artists and the garden movement during the Progressive era in America, just as European impressionism reached our shores. With its extraordinary range of expertise, detailing techniques of artistic expression and developments in landscape architecture and horticulture, the book will enlighten its readers on numerous topics-not the least on the place of Philadelphia and its environs as central to these creative relationships in our cultural and intellectual history."-Paula Deitz, author of Of Gardens: Selected Essays
