An era of exuberant creativity is the focus of thismagnificently illustrated, competitively priced new art book. TheBaroque art of the 17th century was characterised by unbridledemotion, intricate decorative flourishes and a dramatic use oflight, reaching its summit in works such as Bernini?s magnificentaltarpiece, The Ecstasy of St. Theresa. Over time, starting inFrance, this robust genre evolved into the more ornate andsensuously playful Rococo, a style epitomised by the opulentpaintings of Watteau. This beautifully produced in-depthexploration of both movements guides the reader through more than acentury of art history, exploring the lives and works of sculptorssuch as Bernini, painters such as Watteau, Boucher, Rubens andHogarth, architects such as Christopher Wren and many other majorfigures in both the decorative and the fine arts.
