Product description

Review

Blunt has made a highly significant contribution to our understanding of Borromini's work from his first ideas on paper to the finished buildings.

Anthony Blunt reveals his great powers as an architectural historian. His prose is remarkably lucid and concise, even plain, yet extremely evocative?

This full-length study by a very eminent British art historian is a valuable aid for readers interested in an up-to-date and very thorough analysis of everything Borromini did.

Anthony Blunt excites expectation whenever he publishes...To the delight of many readers, [his writing moves] with an absolute minimum of technical architectural vocabulary...Altogether the most lucid, sensitive, and trustworthy study of Borromini yet to appear.

From the Back Cover

In this richly illustrated book, Anthony Blunt shows how the combination of revolutionary inventiveness and intellectual control gives Borromini's work its appeal.
