An introduction to the life and times of Gerrit Vlaskamp. To understand the rising popularity of the English landscape style in Dutch gardening we have also to investigate the world of the owners of country houses and estates, especially their networks of relatives and friends. Another crucial aspect is the changing relationship between town and country in the course of the 19th century and the rise of tourism in this century.
