Description

Baroque and Rococo art and architecture have become popular once more, after a century and a half of neglect, misunderstanding and scorn.

This radical shift in taste has led to a rapid growth of detailed knowledge about the artists who created these exhilarating styles.

The famous masters have been reassessed and whole areas of achievement--Italian Baroque painting, German Rococo architecture--have been brought to a new, enthusiastic public.

Germain Bazin's engaging survey of this rich subject ranges over all Europe and traces the origins and effects of these two periods of art--from the Counter-Reformation to Neoclassicism, Exoticism and even Art Nouveau. 218 illus., 43 in color.
