Hermann von Pückler-Muskau


German writer, traveller and garden designer. He owned a vast estate astride what is now the German-Polish border. After touring English gardens in 1816 be began work on making a landscape park at Muskau.The work was too expensive and he had to sell the estate, using the proceeds to buy a smaller, but still very large, estate at Schloss Branitz near Kottbus. His books included Semilassos vorletlter Weltgang (1835), and Semilasso in Afrika (1836), Andeutungen uber Landschaftsgartnerei (1834). His garden work shows the influence of Lancelot Brown, in its sweeping treatment of woods, pastures and water, and Humphry Repton, in his fondness for colourful bedding near the house.

He died 4 February 1871, Branitz.
