The artist Jacques Wirtz, born in 1924, is one of the most important landscape artists of the 20th century. In France, he designed the Carrousel gardens between the Louvre and the Tuileries. His recognisable style combines very orderly hedge structures with the undulating forms of boxwood topiaries. No two of his gardens are the same, and his adaptation to the site, the preservation of important subjects by incorporating them into the final design, as well as the multitude of 'gardens' within the garden - which are as many surprises for the visitor - are the characteristic features of the landscape gardener.
Primard appears as a condensed version of this style to which is added the romanticism of the site and the subtle tastes of its patron. In the rigour of the layout of its boxwoods, one must appreciate the lightness and elegance of a rambling rose.
