Edouard André, an adventurous landscape gardener

Published on 31 January 2018 - Updated 29 March 2019

The exhibition is organised around 3 defining features of Edouard André's identity. The first part presents the horticulturist and traveller. The second delves into his work as a landscape gardener: his beginnings, his agency, his designs in the Loire Valley and his legacy (with René Edouard André). The final part is devoted to Edouard André: the theoretician, writer and professor.

The 6 panels making up this exhibition: 

  1. An explorer of the plant world
  2. The diversity of projects of a successful artist
  3. The French landscape school, passing on and sharing a passion
  4. A region of choice: The Loire Valley
  5. Site and styles, towards a new form of garden
  6. René André (1867–1942), the garden legacy

It has been curated by Stéphanie de Courtois, a member of the Édouard André Association.
