What: ART BAR & TWILIGHT TALK with Dr Luke Morgan   The Monster In The Garden: The Grotesque, The Gigantic And The Monstrous In Renaissance Landscape Design. We think of the Renaissance garden as a place of leisure and pleasure, a kind of earthly paradise – but representations of monsters, giants and the grotesque are common in 16th and 17th century landscape design. In this fascinating lecture Dr Morgan will suggest that Renaissance gardens are not just places of pleasure but of peril as well: the presence of the monster.
