"Art and Architecture in Italy 1600-1750 is the largest volume in the Pelican History of Art series covering almost two hundred years of architecture, sculpture and painting in a country that, for most of the first hundred, was the leading centre of European art. The baroque style created and developed there was to dominate the rest of the continent (and much of South America)."--BOOK JACKET. "Although Rome was at the forefront of the new style, developments in the provincial centres of Milan, Venice, Bolonga, Naples and dozens of smaller towns are also surveyed. The work of Bernini, Borromini and Caravaggio is balanced by that of Ricchini, Guarini and Tiepolo as well as numerous minor masters."--Jacket

Bernini : the sculptor of the Roman Baroque by Rudolf Wittkower( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gian Lorenzo Bernini was the greatest and most influential sculptor of his age. Endlessly inventive and gifted with extraordinary technical skill, he virtually created the Baroque style. In his religious sculptures he excelled at capturing movement and extreme emotion, uniting figures with their setting to create a single conception of overwhelming intensity that perfectly expressed the fervour of Counter-Reformation Rome. Intensity and drama also characterize his mythological groups, his remarkable portraits and his world-famous Roman fountains. Rudolf Wittkowerʼs classic monograph and catalogue raisonne has remained the standard work on Bernini ever since its first publication in 1955. The concise but masterly survey provides an authoritative introduction to all aspects of Berniniʼs sculpture, while the full catalogue gives detailed, scholarly and up to date information on his complete oeuvre. This is the one indispensable book on Bernini for all students, scholars and art-lovers"--Publisher
