    THE PICTURESQUE The picturesque figured in discussions of eighteenth-century English gardening. In fact, some garden historians acknowledge a gardening style called the picturesque, associated primarily with the work of Humphry Repton. But the concept played a much broader role in eighteenth-century cultural life. Christopher Hussey File Size: KB.   That Ireland is picturesque is a well-worn cliché, but little is understood of how this perception was created, painted, and manipulated during the long 18th century. This book positions Ireland at the core of the picturesque's development and argues for a far greater degree of Irish influence on the course of European landscape theory and design. The Picturesque Garden in Europe. John Dixon Hunt has a very good eye. In this most visual of books, the stunning photographs, many of them shot by the author himself at locations across Europe, are juxtaposed with a superb selection of illustrations of eighteenth-century paintings, watercolors, and designs of some of the most celebrated gardens of the age.
