Carmontelle’s Jardin De Monceau: Celebrating the Unique Garden Culture of 18th-Century France

September 7, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
New York Botanical Garden, 2900 Southern Blvd

+ Google Map

This Colloquium marks the starting point of an important project: the publication of a facsimile edition in English of the richly illustrated Le Jardin de Monceau (1779) by Louis Carrogis de Carmontelle (1717-1806). Designed by Carmontelle for the Duc de Chartres, the garden still survives as the much-frequented Parc Monceau in the heart of Paris. The original layout of the garden, with its rich architectural and sculptural features, formed an ideal setting for the social life of the fashionable elite shortly before the French Revolution. The Jardin de Monceau by Carmontelle is a key cultural monument in the history of European garden design.

James Costa – Darwin’s Backyard: How Small Experiments Led to a Big Theory

September 22, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
New York Botanical Garden, 2900 Southern Blvd
Bronx, NY 10458 United States
+ Google Map

Charles Darwin is an iconic figure in evolutionary biology, but behind the icon is a naturalist with a twinkle in his eye and a passion for “fool’s experiments.” Sometimes quirky, often amusing, and always illuminating, Darwin’s amazing array of hands-on experiments were an ever-present part of his home life. His inventive experiments yielded universal truths about nature, and evidence for his revolutionary arguments in On the Origin of Species and other watershed works. After the lecture, James Costa will sign books in the Mertz Library.
