Italian Baroque Sculpture Reviews
Wonderfully written and gives great explanations without being boring! Well done!
An excellent introduction to and description of Baroque sculpture which, because of its papal backing, is dear to all Christians. This book can maybe be called a biography of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, considering that he seems to have shouldered the entire movement personally. A good book, and I recommend.
