Summary

From 1600 to 1760, Baroque and Rococo artists brought a newfound energy, emotion, and elegance to European painting, sculpture, architecture, and decorative arts. This profusely illustrated survey is the first to incorporate modern scholarship and examine the Baroque and Rococo eras contextually.

Vernon Hyde Minor explores the styles, institutions, cities, and genres that shaped this period's great artistic outpouring -- and illuminates the achievements of Bernini, Caravaggio, Fragonard, Rembrandt, Rubens, Velazquez, Vermeer, Watteau, and other notable artists. With unusually thorough coverage of women artists, town planning, and domestic interiors and gardening, Baroque Rococo brilliantly captures the swirling cultural currents of the time from Counter Reformation Rome to Louis XIV's Versailles to bourgeois Amsterdam.
