Mien Ruys – Leading Lady of Landscape Design by Leo den Dulk and Nico Kloppenburg

The work of this towering figure of 20th century Dutch garden and landscape design (1904-1999) is not well-known outside the country. Here we aim to introduce her to a wider audience. Her combination of Modernism and and inventive use of plants will appeal to many; British and American garden people, whose cultures rather lost out on Modernism in garden design will find her work a revelation. Leo den Dulk has written a biography of Ruys, and Nico Kloppenburg is a designer who talks about her influence on his work.
