Product Description

Synopsis

Anthony Blunt's GUIDE TO BAROQUE ROME, the fruit of a lifetime's work, was a pathbreaking book when it was published in 1982. It quickly established itself as essential reading for traveller and student alike and a new generation of scholars was inspired to explore this field in even greater depth. PALLAS ATHENE is now proud to present the first synthesis of these exciting new discoveries, in a fully revised edition of a book that has been called 'the greatest architectural guidebook ever written' Each of the over 300 entries discusses in detail the history of the church, its design and construction as well as its significant features and decoration (including paintings). Enormous amounts of new information have been amassed since the original edition appeared, and particular care has been taken to make this material as accessible as possible, whether it is an appraisal of the patronage history of a particular chapel, a new attribution, or the full significance of a fresco cycle. Full references and bibliographies are provided in a clearer format than hitherto, and the introductory material, maps, illustrations, and indices have been augmented and improved.

The result is one of the most illuminating and comprehensive guides to a city and to an architectural style ever published.
