"Art and Architecture in Italy 1600-1750 is the largest volume in the Pelican History of Art series covering almost two hundred years of architecture, sculpture and painting in a country that, for most of the first hundred, was the leading centre of European art. The baroque style created and developed there was to dominate the rest of the continent (and much of South America)."--BOOK JACKET. "Although Rome was at the forefront of the new style, developments in the provincial centres of Milan, Venice, Bolonga, Naples and dozens of smaller towns are also surveyed. The work of Bernini, Borromini and Caravaggio is balanced by that of Ricchini, Guarini and Tiepolo as well as numerous minor masters."--Jacket. Volume I: The Early Baroque, 1600-1625; Volume II: The High Baroque, 1625-1675; Volume III, Late Baroque and Rococo, 1675-1750.
