"It's worth noting that the interrelationship of gardening with the other arts was taken for granted throughout much of the field's history. When Pope Clement VII wanted a spiritually inspired garden for the villa he was building at the edge of Rome, he naturally turned to the artist who was painting frescoes on the walls of the Vatican, the artist known today as Raphael (and to his contemporaries as Raffaello Sanzio). Why not The genius for color, composition, and perspective, the understanding of human nature the artist had already demonstrated in his painting were just as important in the design of a garden."
"All gardening is landscape painting." - Alexander Pope (quoted in this book)
