About Sister Arts (From University of Minnesota Press)

In the age of English garden design, eighteenth-century women working in the “sister arts” of painting, poetry, and landscape gardening adapted the tradition of the erotic garden to create art with and for other women celebrating everything from classical friendship to erotic love. Lisa L. Moore reveals how these artists used flowers, gardens, and landscapes to express their love for other women.
