For the fourth edition of this introduction to Italian sculpture, the author has thoroughly revised the text, notes and bibliographies, incorporating all the significant new research and publications since the last major revision in 1970-2. Volume III, ranging from 1500 to the late-17th century, begins and ends with two outstanding personalities: Michelangelo and Bernini. Michelangelo forged a new and ideal style, the development of which is traced in the work of Andrea and Jacopo Sansovino, Benvenuto Cellini, Giambologna, Pietro Tacca, Leone Leoni, Alessandro Vittoria and others. The author also describes the artistic problems presented by the statue, relief, portrait, tomb and fountain in the 16th century, culminating in the dramatic innovations of Bernini which ushered in the Baroque style. The new edition of this work provides an accessible introduction to the subject for scholars, students and all lovers of Italian art. At the same time its scholarly notes make it a valuable reference work. Each volume in the set of three can be enjoyed in its own right.About the Author:
