Description
The years between 1520 and 1630 in Italy form a crucial period in the history of Western architecture. Typically the classic age of the High Renaissance ends with Michelangelo, while Baroque begins with the generation of Borromini and Bernini; in between comes Mannerism, a style only identified in the 20th century and never convincingly defined. Andrew Hopkins posits that this was a century of experiment, diversity, and bold initiatives that cannot be expressed by a single label. In this book, with 208 black and white illustrations, he discusses famous names—Palladio, Vignola, Sansovino, Scamozzi, Longhena—as well as others who were equally brilliant yet are relatively unknown.
