Boucher, Italian Baroque Sculpture
The art of sculpture in Baroque Italy reached unprecedented heights of technical perfection and emotional intensity. This book offers a view of this rich and varied period, ranging from the exuberance of Gianlorenzo Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne and Nicola Salvi’s ever-popular Trevi Fountain to the restraint and simplicity of Alessandro Algardi’s St Philip Neri. Expressive papal tombs and subtly idealized portrait busts reflected contemporary debates on identity and the afterlife; multi-sensory compositions such as Bernini’s Cornano Chapel embodied an unforgettable and wholly new combination of spirituality and sensuality; and dazzling fountains and angelic statuary transformed the urban spaces of the Eternal City forever.
