Art and Architecture in Italy, 1600-1750 Summary


Art and Architecture in Italy, 1600-1750: Volume 1: The Early Baroque, 1600-1625 by Rudolf Wittkower

This classic survey of Italian Baroque art and architecture focuses on the arts in every center between Venice and Sicily in the early, high, and late Baroque periods. The heart of the study, however, lies in the architecture and sculpture of the exhilarating years of Roman High Baroque, when Bernini, Borromini, and Cortona were all at work under a series of enlightened popes. Wittkower's text is now accompanied by a critical introduction and substantial new bibliography. This edition will also include color illustrations for the first time.

This is the first book in the three volume survey.
