9780500203071: Italian Baroque Sculpture (World of Art)

With the aid of 184 photographs in black-and-white and color, Boucher (art history, University College, London) discusses the origins of baroque sculpture, portraiture, fountains and garden sculpture, the "bel composto" ("beautiful synthesis," a combination of painting, sculpture, and architecture), reliefs and sculptural altarpieces, ephemeral decorations and small works of art, and the transition from the late baroque period into neoclassicism. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From the Back Cover:

The sculptural flowering of the Italian Baroque - the sensuous beauty of Bernini's Apollo and Daphne; the spectacular papal tombs in St. Peter's; dramatic altarpieces such as the mystical Ecstasy of St. Teresa; and Rome's dazzling fountains - boldly transcended the traditional limitations of artistic media. Often dismissed in the past for creating a sham world to distract the observer's attention with dazzling technical displays, the sculpture of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Italy is here reassessed for the first time in more than a generation. Published to coincide with the fourth centenary of the births of Bernini and Algardi, the greatest of Baroque sculptors, Bruce Boucher's book provides an invaluable critical survey of Italian Baroque sculpture.

About the Author:

Boucher, Professor in the History of Art at University College in the University of London.

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The art of sculpture in Baroque Italy reached unprecedented heights of technical perfection and emotional intensity. This book offers a view of this rich and varied period, ranging from the exuberance of Gianlorenzo Bernini s Apollo and Daphne and Nicola Salvi s ever-popular Trevi Fountain to the restraint and simplicity of Alessandro Algardi s St Philip Neri . Expressive papal tombs and subtly idealized portrait busts reflected contemporary debates on identity and the afterlife; multi-sensory compositions such as Bernini s Cornano Chapel embodied an unforgettable and wholly new combination of spirituality and sensuality; and dazzling fountains and angelic statuary transformed the urban spaces of the Eternal City forever.
