Charles Bridgeman (1690-1738)

Map loading...

Charles Bridgeman (1690–1738) was an English garden designer in the onset of the naturalistic landscape style. Although he was a key figure in the transition of English garden design from the Anglo-Dutch formality of patterned parterres and avenues to a freer style that incorporated formal, structural and wilderness elements, Bridgeman is a somewhat obscure entity in the history of landscape architecture, his reputation eclipsed by those of his successors, William Kent and Lancelot “Capability” Brown (Jellicoe, et al., 1986, p. 72).
