Baroques
Giovanni Careri
With photographs by Ferrante Ferranti

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"[Baroques] has 250 of the most splendid color pictures of world baroque monuments ever assembled in one place. . . . This book is . . . refreshing in its inclusion of Latin American baroque. . . . The organization of the book--it is thematic rather than geographical--is . . . novel, where the photographs are concerned it achieves unexpected and thought-provoking juxtapositions."--Gauvin Alexander Bailey, Renaissance Quarterly

"The profusion and eloquence of [Giovanni] Careri's descriptions appeal to the senses with a power equaled by Ferranti's lavish and stirring images. Careri and Ferrante provide a highly effective introduction to Italiente Baroque sculpture and architecture with a focus on Bertini. . . . Baroques is intellectually and visually stimulating."--Melinda K. Van der Ploeg Fallon, Sixteenth Century Journal

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"A very beautiful book. Its novelty, and its value as both a volume for lay people and scholars, lies in the excellence of its photographs and the perceptive way in which they are shot--the most revealing angles, the most evocative lighting, stunning details, and views from beneath or above."--Mary Tavenor Holmes, author of Nicolas Lancret, 1690-1743
