Andre Le Notre (1613-1700) was the greatest landscape architect in France, and his work for Louis XIV (the Sun King) laid the groundwork for the baroque style in landscaping. He also defined the essence of French landscape design -scientific, rationalist-in counterpoint to the more romantic, naturalistic English tradition and based his work on the then state-of-the-art science of optics and perspective. The castle and gardens at Vaux-le-Vicomte (approximately 50 km south of Paris) were begun in 1653. They are the first great landscape designed by Andre Le Notre and mark the beginning of the baroque tradition in gardening. Many of the principles Le Notre tried and tested at Vaux were later employed to great acclaim at Versailles, which he designed at the height of his career.
