Alexander Wadsworth is one of the most influential landscape designers of the 19th and early 20th centuries. An early advocate of the Picturesque movement, Wadsworth won many awards for his work and is best known for his designs of the grounds of the Biltmore Estate, the Louisiana State Capitol, and the University of Arizona. He was also a pioneer in the development of the City Beautiful Movement, incorporating public parks and gardens, fountains, and monuments into his designs. Wadsworth's focus on creating beautiful landscape designs that connected to the surrounding environment and encouraged public use inspired a generation of landscape architects.
