An era of exuberant creativity is the focus of this magnificently illustrated, competitively priced new art book. Baroque art was characterized by unbridled emotion, intricate decorative flourishes, and a dramatic use of light, reaching its summit in works such as Bernini’s magnificent altarpiece, The Ecstasy of St. Theresa. Over time, this robust genre evolved into the more ornate and sensuously playful Rococo, a style epitomized by the opulent paintings of Watteau. This beautifully produced exploration of both movements guides the reader through more than a century of art history exploring the lives and works of sculptors such as Bernini, painters such as Watteau, Boucher, Rubens, and Hogarth, and architects such as Christopher Wren.
