Body and Soul is the catalogue of the exhibition held from 21 October to 19 November 2010 at Moretti Fine Art Gallery - Adam Williams Fine Art Gallery (20 East 80th Street, New York City). The catalogue presents great masterpieces of Italian Renaissance and Baroque sculpture. It was supervised by Andrew Butterfield and Fabrizio Moretti, two of the world's foremost experts of antique trade. The sculptures that the book deeply analyzes all have something in common: they combine ideality and naturalism of form with intensity and depth of expression, so that both the outer appearance and the inner life of the character represented manage to emerge. In short, not even one of these sculptures submitted to the strict academic rules which have always influenced art. They were selected because they celebrate life in every single aspect, both physical and spiritual. Among the artists whose works are here described are Andrea Del Verrocchio, Jacopo Sansovino, Andrea Riccio, Alessandro Algardi, Domenico Pieratti, Giambattista Foggini, Pierre Le Gros, Giuseppe Mazzuoli, Giuseppe Piamontini and Giovachino Fortini. The book includes introductions by Andrew Butterfield, Fabrizio Moretti and Marc Fumaroli as well as in-depth essays by Andrea Bacchi, Andrew Butterfield, C. D. Dickerson, Marc Fumaroli, Giancarlo Gentilini, Tomaso Montanari and Riccardo Spinelli, providing historical and technical information. The volume is rich in colour images and each essay is accompanied by a detailed bibliography.
