Lancelot 'Capability' Brown
Lancelot 'Capability' Brown (1716-1783) worked with landowners across England to create stunning, large-scale landscapes and was known as the 'omnipotent magician'. He dominated his profession and was prolific - his work is everywhere, but his was such a naturalistic style that all his best work was mistaken for untouched nature. The English Landscape Style developed by Brown and his contemporaries spread across Europe, Russia and North America and continues to shape contemporary landscape design.
