Due to their ephemeral nature, most gardens have changed or been lost since the Renaissance, but illuminated manuscripts of the period offer a glimpse into how people at the time pictured, used, and enjoyed these idyllic green spaces. Through a wide range of works drawn from the Getty Museum?s permanent collection, this exhibition explores gardens on many levels��from the literary Garden of Love and the biblical Garden of Eden to courtly gardens of the nobility��and reports on the many activities both reputable and scandalous that took place there.<br> <!-- More Info --> <br><a href="/art/exhibitions/gardens_renaissance"><img border="0" src="../images/arrow_more_events.gif" width="7" height="7">&nbsp;Learn more about this exhibition</a><br> <!-- Reservation --> </span>
