Baroque and Rococo

Baroque Rococo [Pdf/ePub] eBook

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 & Rococo

Baroque Rococo [Pdf/ePub] eBook

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.

A Cultural History of the Modern Age Vol. 2

Baroque Rococo [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Cultural History of the Modern Age Vol. 2 by Egon Friedell Book Resume:

This is the second volume of Friedell's monumental A Cultural History of the Modern Age. A key figure in the flowering of Viennese culture between the two world wars, this three volume work is considered his masterpiece. The centuries covered in this second volume mark the victory of the scientifi c mind: in nature-research, language-research, politics, economics, war, even morality, poetry, and religion. All systems of thought produced in this century, either begin with the scientifi c outlook as their foundation or regard it as their highest and fi nal goal. Friedell claims three main streams pervade the eighteenth century: Enlightenment, Revolution, and Classicism. In ordinary use, by "Enlightenment" we mean an extreme rationalistic tendency of which preliminary stages were noted in the seventeenth century. Th e term "Classicism", is well understood. Under the term "Revolution" Friedell includes all movements directed against what has been dominant and traditional. Th e aims of such movements were remodeling the state and society, banning all esthetic canons, and dethronement of reason by sentiment, all in the name of the "Return to Nature." Th e Enlightenment tendency might be seen as laying the ground for an age of revolution. Th is second volume continues Friedell's dramatic history of the driving forces of the twentieth century.

Transformations

Baroque Rococo [Pdf/ePub] eBook

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.
