Bernini : genius of the Baroque by Charles Avery ( Book )
19 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and French and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gianlorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) was the presiding genius of the Italian Baroque. As a sculptor, he produced a host of exhilarating works -- the Ecstasy of St. Teresa, David, Apollo and Daphne, The Rape of Proserpina, among others -- that seem to breathe with life. As an architect, he created the interior of St. Peter's in Vatican City as we know it today -- the ornate shrines and monuments under the dome, the papal tombs, and encircling colonnades of the Piazza San Pietro itself -- as well as churches and numerous fountains throughout Rome

The triumph of motion : Francesco Bertos (1678-1741) and the art of sculpture : catalogue raisonné by Charles Avery ( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and Italian and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Francesco Bertos (1678-1741) lived and died at Dolo, near Padua, where people used to change boats at a lock between the Brenta Canal and the Lagoon of Venice. Until recently a mysterious and neglected sculptor, he specialised in the production of eye-catching mythological, allegorical and religious groups of generally conical form." "Many of the figures are all but flying, or just manage to support each other like acrobats or ballet-dancers. Indeed, they have been likened to Rococo porcelain groups. Bertos was obsessed with a constant search for dynamic movement, in a similar vein to contemporary, late Baroque paintings, especially the tumbling groups of figures in airy trompe l'oeil ceilings." "Bertos's work is not - as has sometimes been supposeddevoid of meaning and merely capricious or even humorous, but has definite - if high-flown - meanings." "His principal patrons were the nobility of Venice and Padua, as well as foreign royalty: Tsar Peter the Great, and the King of Sardinia, of the House of Savoy in Turin." "This book documents the rediscovery of Bertos's work and the reassessment of his standing during the twentieth century, which has gone hand in hand with trends in the art market and fashions in collecting, especially in England and America."--BOOK JACKET

Donatello the first modern sculptor by Ann Turner ( Visual )
11 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Donatello (1386-1466) was one of Europe's greatest sculptors. His strong portrayal of human character and expressive style make his work as appealing today as it was revolutionary in his lifetime. Among the many examples included in this in-depth study of Donatello's achievements is a beautiful terra-cotta relief of the Madonna and Child. Neglected for many years, its quality was at last revealed during the filming of this documentary
