Italian Frescoes

£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

The fifth and final volume of the only comprehensive survey in modern times of the surviving Italian frescoes from the Baroque era, 1600 to 1800, this groundbreaking work is an achievement in scholarship and publishing of the same magnitude as Abbeville's Art of Florence and Art and Spirit of Paris. Following the success of the previous volumes in this extraordinary Italian Frescoes series - The Age of Giotto, The Early Renaissance, The Flowering of the Renaissance, and The High Renaissance and Mannerism - this new publication features twenty five fresco cycles, each representing a notable achievement in the history of art. The fresco cycles presented include brilliant works by Domenichino, Sebastiano Ricci, Guercino, and Tiepolo-all of them still visible on walls and ceilings of palaces and churches spanning Italy from Venice to Naples. T he authors present such celebrated sites as the Barberini Palace in Rome and the Pitti Palace in Florence, as well as lesser known gems.

Hardback with dust jacket. Used, very good condition; minor signs of wear at the corners of the dust jacket
