About this title

Synopsis:

The years from 1520 to 1630 were crucial in the development of Western architecture, but to label as Mannerist the transition from Michelangelo's "licentious" New Sacristy in Florence to Borromini's innovative S. Carlo alle Quattro Fontane is coming to seem unduly simplistic.

In this carefully researched and original study, Andrew Hopkins examines the century's changing functional demands, the political forces, the patronage system, and local traditions. Exploring a wide range of Italian buildings (including those outside the major urban centers), he introduces us to dozens of neglected architects whose works will come as a revelation. By 1630, architecture had taken on a new dynamism that would soon conquer Italy, Europe, and the New World: the baroque.

About the Author:

Andrew Hopkins, formerly the Deputy Director of the British School in Rome, is the Editor of The Burlington Magazine. Among his previous books are Santa Maria della Salute: Architecture and Ceremony in Baroque Venice and Lutyens Abroad.
