Baroque and Rococo by Vernon Hyde Minor Book Resume:
The period 1600-1760 in Europe was remarkable for its artistic diversity, encompassing the dramatic exuberance of Bernini, the psychological acuity of Rembrandt, and the sparkling brio of Boucher. Yet the shared principles, concerns, and attitudes of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries created a kind of internationalism that justifies a survey of the era as a whole. Traditional surveys of the period divide their material strictly by countries and chronological periods. By contrast, Vernon Minor looks at the prevalent themes of Baroque and Rococo artistic production through the lens of the dominant institutions of the day. The ideologies of the Counter-Reformation Church, the court of Louis Quatorze, and the mercantile economy of the Calvinist Dutch are implicit in much of the painting, sculpture, and architecture of the epoch. In a series of connecting essays, readers will encounter perceptive discussions of ecclesiastical altarpieces, ceiling paintings, and papal tombs; church and palace architecture; mythological and history paintings; landscapes and city views; portraits, still lifes, and genre scenes; Baroque town planning and Rococo domestic settings -- all seen in the context of contemporary artists, academies, patrons, critics, and beholders. While eschewing outmoded approaches to the subject, the author supplies readings of many of the acknowledged masterpieces of the day emanating from England, France, the Low Countries, Italy, and Spain.
Baroque and Rococo by Barbara Borngässer Klein,Rolf Toman,Barbara Borngässer Book Resume:
Baroque and Rococo encompasses the German Empire as well as the Netherlands, England, France, Espin, and Italy. This highly expressive, almost effusive art epoch is explained to the reader by means of practical examples of painting, sculpture, and formal gardens that illustrate the new choice of motives that developed in the painting of the time.
Baroque and Rococo Art and Architecture by Robert Neuman Book Resume:
Baroque and Rococo Art and Architecture is the first in-depth history of one of the great periods of Western art, spanning the years 1585 to 1785. The text treats the major media—painting, sculpture, drawings, prints, and architecture—as well as gardens, furniture, tapestries, costume, jewelry, and ceramics, all in terms of their original function and patronage and with emphasis on the social, political and cultural context. Organized by country and medium, the book contains biographies of the leading creative figures of the time, from Caravaggio and Rembrandt to Watteau and Hogarth. Significantly, Professor Neuman offers the fullest account to date of women artists and the representation of women and families in art. Additionally, drawing from recent scholarship, the text explores such fields as Spanish polychrome sculpture and Viceregal American painting. Baroque and Rococo Art and Architecture reviews traditional and recent strategies for interpreting artworks. It also traces the dissemination of visual ideas through prints and drawings—the forerunners of today’s art reproductions and digital media. In special sections the text raises questions regarding the nature of perception and how artists transfer optical data to the canvas. Artists’ techniques, from painting and printmaking to sculpting in marble and casting in bronze, are explained. Analysis of the institutions of art, such as the royal academies, apprenticeship systems, and artists’ exhibition rooms, complements an examination of collecting at all levels of society. The book is exceptional in considering issues related to authenticity and the relative value of artworks based on attribution. The illustrations comprise a visual resource of unprecedented quality, with some 450 images reproduced in full color and in a large format that ensures high detail and emphasizes recent conservation efforts. Finally, an extensive glossary introduces seventeenth- and eighteenth-century art terms. Note: MySearchLab does not come automatically packaged with this text.

Baroque & Rococo by Marco Bussagli,Mattia Reiche Book Resume:
An era of exuberant creativity is the focus of this magnificently illustrated, competitively priced new art book. The Baroque art of the 17th century was characterised 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, starting in France, this robust genre evolved into the more ornate and sensuously playful Rococo, a style epitomised by the opulent paintings of Watteau. This beautifully produced in-depth 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, architects such as Christopher Wren and many other major figures in both the decorative and the fine arts.

Transformations by Christopher Tadgell Book Resume:
Unprecedented in scope like its companion volume on the High Renaissance, Transformations, this sixth volume in the Architecture in Context series traces the development of architecture and decoration in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries – particularly the transformation of rationalist Classical ideals into the emotive, highly theatrical style known as Baroque and the further development away from architectonic principles to the free-ranging decorative style known as Rococo. It begins with an outline of the politics of Absolutism and its opposite over the century from the Thirty Years’ War to the War of the Austrian Succession: this is illustrated with images largely chosen from the major artists of the day; a supplementary introduction outlines the cross-currents of painting in the early Baroque era. The first substantive section deals with the seminal masters active in Rome – Maderno, Cortona, Borromini and Bernini – and their contemporaries there, in Venice and in Piedmont. The second section deals with the seminal French masters – above all François Mansart, Louis Le Vau, Andre Le Nôtre, Jules-Hardouin Mansart and the latter’s followers who developed the Rococo style in the domestic field. The rest of the book is divided into three large sections: the Protestant North – the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Britain; the Divided Centre – the Catholic powers of central Europe and southern Germany, the Protestants of northern Germany and the Orthodox Russians; the Catholic South – the Iberian kingdoms and their dominions in southern Italy and the Americas.
