Description
The art of sculpture in Baroque Italy reached unprecedented heights of technical perfection and emotional intensity. Illustrated with black and white and color photographs, this book offers a detailed view of this rich and varied period, ranging from the exuberance of Gianlorenzo Bernini's Apollo and Daphne and Nicola Salvi's world-famous Trevi Fountain to the restraint and simplicity of Alessandro Algardi's St. Philip Neri. Grand papal tombs and subtly idealized portrait busts reflected contemporary debates on identity and the afterlife while Bernini's Cornaro Chapel embodied a revolutionary combination of spirituality and sensuality.
