Item description for Sculptures Parks in Europe: A Guide to Art and Nature by Jimena Blazquez Abascal, Valeria Varas & Raul Rispa...
Recent years have seen the creation of many new parks, gardens, forests, and valleys where modern sculpture and nature form a special bond. Designed nature serves as an inspiring setting for artworks that in turn enliven and animate the vibrant tension between the artificial and natural aspects of the grounds.
This guidebook presents some eighty parks from eighteen different European countries. Each park and the artworks in it are presented with photographs, plans, and texts. The parks include both classics like the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul de Vence, which attracts more than two hundred thousand visitors a year, and the Louisiana Museum in Humlebaek as well as new parks like the Europos Parkas in Vilnius, Sculpture at Schoenthal in Switzerland, and the sterreichische Skulpturenpark in Graz.
