View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This fascinating and expansive catalogue, published to coincide with a ground-breaking exhibition, explores every facet of baroque architecture in Europe.

The baroque style of architecture arose from the Mannerist style of the seventeenth century. At its height, it encompassed all the arts and embodied the message of the Counter Reformation. This style spread from the Rome of Bernini and Borromini to Versailles, Wrzburg, and St. Petersburg-indeed all over Europe.

The works rendered in various media illustrate the many styles of baroque construction: villas and chateaux, military, ecclesiastical, and military architecture, palaces and gardens - for an unrivaled presentation of this period in European architectural style.
