The aim of this essay is to discuss the position of garden history and landscape architecture in relation to the fields of art history and architectural history in a Swedish historiographical context. I will do this by examining some books and journals from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries including garden history and compare them with a selection of overviews in art history. From what perspectives has the history of gardens and designed landscapes been discussed, written and disseminated? Under what circumstances has garden history been incorporated into art history? Who were the authors and who were the implied readers? And how can the topic be further developed?
