“Well, that’s just it, said Trevor. I don’t know what I mean. There was a young woman here, he said. Yesterday, when I first came in. No, the day before yesterday. Do you remember?”

The English Garden sees both Brown and Lewis contribute acutely detailed and darkly sensuous allusions to the traditional eighteenth-century English landscape garden. Thirty-nine of Brown’s paintings are interspersed throughout the compact publication as tipped-in images.
