Landscape gardens became important social, cultural, and artistic phenomenon during the late 18th century in close connection with the Enlightenment and the rise of modernity. The landscape garden in Krásný Dvůr represents an almost intactly preserved early landscape garden in Bohemia, which was directly influenced by J. R. Černín´s Grand Tour to Western Europe. Moreover, it deeply influenced the Bohemian landscaping due to its early foundation. The proposed project is based on comparative and interdisciplinary approaches: it joins historical, art historical, and landscape architectural methods by studying the phenomenon of early landscape gardens. The project focuses on the art historical and landscape architectural connection between the garden in Krásný Dvůr and other early landscape gardens in Bohemia and Europe, first of all the gardens visited by J. R. Černín during his Grand Tour and gardens which were widely known in the late 18th century due to books and engravings.
