Art and Garden
“Nothing is more the child of art than a garden.”
Sir Walter Scott, (15 August 1771 – 21 September 1832), Scottish historical novelist
In my opinion, the Chinese Garden in Berlin-Marzahn is a perfect child of art. If we equate art with beauty–the Chinese Garden is art, because it is beautiful with its small teahouses and pavilions. The contrast between the green of grass and trees with the red of the buildings pleases the eye.
If we equate art with conscious creation–the Chinese Garden is art, because it is constructed from the beginning to the end: plants and rocks are carefully selected, the paths going through the Chinese garden are never straight.
Do you have such children of art where you live?
