Celebrates the Du Pont family heritage of land stewardship and horticultural creativity.
Renowned as the first family of American horticulture,the du Ponts created magnificent landscapes and gardens that complement the Brandywine Valley, a beautiful rolling landscape nestled between Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware. Five of their estates – Hagley Museum and Library, Nemours Estate, Mt. Cuba Center, Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, and Longwood Gardens – are open to the public, each a showplace of formal plantings juxtaposed with carefully nurtured natural woodland. Larry Lederman’s photographs capture the essence of these sites, moving through the seasons and through the day from dawn to dusk.
