The Dumbarton estate, museum, and garden is "an institute of Harvard University dedicated to supporting scholarship internationally in Byzantine, Garden and Landscape, and Pre-Columbian studies."
The Museum galleries feature specialized collections of Byzantine and Pre-Columbian art, European masterpieces on view in the historic Music Room, and a rotating program of Special Exhibitions.
The publication, Dumbarton Oaks, the first to present the gardens of Dumbarton Oaks, features more than one hundred color photographs of the garden in all seasons. Photographer Ping Amranand has documented the garden over the course of more than a decade, and his exceptional images capture all aspects of the garden. Susan Tamulevich's text details the original conception of the garden, its implementation over the course of half a century, and its continuing inspiration as an unparalleled American landscape.
