This classic survey of Italian Baroque art and architecture focuses on the arts in every center between Venice and Sicily in the early, high, and late Baroque periods. The heart of the study, however, lies in the architecture and sculpture of the exhilarating years of Roman High Baroque, when Bernini, Borromini, and Cortona were all at work under a series of enlightened popes. Wittkower's text is now accompanied by a critical introduction and substantial new bibliography. This edition will also include color illustrations for the first time. This is the second book in the three volume survey.

History Of Art

For forty years, this widely acclaimed classic has remained unsurpassed as an introduction to art in the Western world, boasting the matchless credibility of the Janson name. This newest update features a more contemporary, more colorful design and vast array of extraordinarily produced illustrations that have become the Janson hallmark. A narrative voice makes this book a truly enjoyable read, and carefully reviewed and revised updates to this edition offer the utmost clarity in contributions based on recent scholarship. Extensive captions for the book’s incredible art program offer profound insight through the eyes of twentieth-century art historians speaking about specific pieces of art featured throughout. Significantly changed in this edition is the chapter on “The Late Renaissance,” in which Janson offers a new perspective on the subject, tracing in detail the religious art tied to the Catholic Reform movement, whose early history is little known to many readers of art history. Janson has also rearranged early Renaissance art according to genres instead of time sequence, and he has followed the reinterpretation of Etruscan art begun in recent years by German and English art historians. With a truly humanist approach, this book gives written and visual meaning to the captivating story of what artists have tried to express—and why—for more than 30,000 years.

Bernini And The Excesses Of Art

The vitality of Petersson's book is drawn directly from the sculpture of Bernini, an artist now regarded as the true successor of Michelangelo. It differs from others by bringing the reader inside the sculptural process, from genesis to completed form. Frequently Bernini had to solve uniquely interesting problems and his innovative talents never faltered. As well as presenting the brilliant, flamboyant Bernini, the book simultaneously displays Rome in the throes of its Counter-Reformation renewal, the second birth of the city with the full panoply of its arts, culture, and aberrant activities during Bernini's years in the service of eight popes. In later life he expanded his fame by spending an eventful half year in Paris at the invitation of Louis XIV. The proud and touchy Bernini, then the most celebrated artist in Europe, was in a pitched battle with the arrogant and aggressive French. Yet in Paris as in Rome it is the artistic works that have lasted and are widely known as having redirected the course of European sculpture.

By the end of the eighteenth century, classicism, which arose out of Europe's fascination with ancient Greece and Rome, had also left its mark on America. This study of the classical style in the fine and decorative arts shows the extent to which it influenced the material culture of Savannah, Georgia, from 1800 to 1840. More than 130 examples of objects owned in Savannah in this period are illustrated, described, and discussed. The objects include oil paintings and watercolors, clocks, musical instruments, jewelry, sculptures, engravings, bank notes, needlework, china, silver, brass, lighting fixtures, architectural elements, and furniture. Page Talbott presents an overview of the origins of classicism in Europe and its spread to America. Emphasizing Americans' close identification of classicism with national values and ideals, Talbott also discusses the style in the context of Savannah's social life and its history as a major southern port. She covers not only the principles, methods, and materials of classical design, but also the manufacture, distribution, sale, and ownership of a wide range of functional and decorative objects. Classical Savannah is the companion volume to the Classical Savannah exhibition, which opened in the spring of 1995 at the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah. Illustrating well over half of the items in the exhibit, and including a detailed checklist of the additional seventy objects not shown in the book, Classical Savannah is a valuable source for historians, designers, decorators, collectors, and anyone interested in this period of America's history.

Passive Tranquillity

This is a monographic study of the eighteenth-century Italian sculptor. Born in Florence in 1698, della Valle came to Rome in 1725 upon the death of his uncle & master, Giovanni Saftista Foggini. There he remained until his death in 1768. the phrase "passive tranquillity" refers both to the style of Della Valle's sculpture & the ambiance of eighteenth-century Rome, &, further, serves to distinguish Della Valle from his better known precursors Gianlorenzo Bernini & Michelangelo. Theirs was a sculpture of the heroic & highly expressive. Della Valle's sculpture represents figures of an introverted, self-effacing, & serene type. In its demonstrations of the ways in which della Valle's art could have been formed by the institutions & broader cultural currents of eighteenth-century Rome, the text seeks to account for that sense of quiescence & composure common to the arts of settecento Rome. The catalogue raisonne brings together previously unpublished documents & photographs of della Valle's work & provides evidence for attributions & the circumstances of patronage.

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.

His connecting of trends in fine painting, sculpture, literature, music, opera, drama, religion, even cinema, to U.S. race relations is spellbinding. 188 pp.

The Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius declared firmitas, utilitas, and venustas-firmness, commodity, and delight- to be the three essential attributes of architecture. These qualities are brilliantly explored in this book, which uniquely comprises both a detailed survey of Western architecture, including Pre-Columbian America, and an introduction to architecture from the Middle East, India, Russia, China, and Japan. The text encourages readers to examine closely the pragmatic, innovative, and aesthetic attributes of buildings, and to imagine how these would have been praised or criticized by contemporary observers. Artistic, economic, environmental, political, social, and technological contexts are discussed so as to determine the extent to which buildings met the needs of clients, society at large, and future generations.
