Russell Page (1906-1985) is considered one of the greatest garden designers of the modern period. He trained as an artist and brought a painters eye for form and style to the many gardens that he made.

His professional gardening career began at Longleat House in the 1930’s and ended in the 1980’s with the design of a Sculpture garden for Pepsi Compamy in New York.

Page designed Gardens all over the world: among his most famous are the Battersea Park Festival Gardens made for the 1951 Festival of Britain, the garden at La Mortella on the island of Ischia designed for Sir William and Lady Walton and the garden of the Frick Collection in New York City.

“The Education of A Gardener” is an exhibition of more than 50 paintings, photographs and drawings from Pages’ own archive, the collection of the Royal Horticultural Society and public and private collections in the United States and Europe. It was designed by Feilden Fowles.
