The lake in the middle of Boboli. I don’t know the lost gardens of Heligan(?), an Italian influence at work here too though. It would have been nice to see some of the paintings reproduced that you mention, Patrick.
Roamin through the painterly spaces in your own and yes more ‘open’ .

One stands in wonder as the eyes dance round the gallery following these wonderful shapes and colours . Difficult to choose the best , they are all so alive and interesting .
