4.0 out of 5 stars Borromini: The Bad Boy of Baroque Architecture!, 28 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Borromini (Paperback)
Although he was vilified for centuries as a wild and irresponsible revolutionary, Borromini is now hailed as one of the great masters (some would say the greatest) of Baroque architecture.

This monograph was originally published in 1979, the year in which the author was stripped of his knighthood, (having been outed as a one-time Soviet spy). Comprehensive, detailed and well-illustrated, the book remains the standard work on one of the most inventive and original minds in the history of architecture.

While Borromini is never likely to become a household name, he does deserve to be much better known. Blunt's book goes a little way to achieving this, although some readers may find the author's style to be a little dry and disengaged.
