Art and Architecture in Italy, 1600 to 1750

Penguin Books | 1965 | ISBN: N/A | English | 672 pages | PDF | 85.7 MB

From the dark, monumental canvases of Caravaggio and the more traditional work of the Carracci, painting, during this period, seemed to leap a century to the prodigious ceilings and frescoes of Tiepolo and leave little impression. To these masters Professor Wittkower does full justice, just as he describes the progress of the arts in every centre between Venice and Sicily in each of the three periods into which his book falls. But the heart of this splendid volume lies in the fields of architecture and sculpture during the exhilarating years of Roman High Baroque, when Bernini, Borromini, and Cortona were all at work under a series of enlightened popes.
