Did you know that your Willow Pattern tea set represents a Cantonese garden?  Did you ever wonder why we are more familiar with Japanese than Chinese gardens in the West? This talk will trace how the current understanding of Chinese gardens in Europe and North America has been shaped by history – and why Chinese landscape gardening was seen as either natural or artificial, depending on the century.
