SYNOPSIS: Chronological depiction of the fine arts from their origins in Rome through the late baroque and rococo Explanation of the sociopolitical background: the Counter-Reformation, the development of Protestantism, absolutism, and the French Revolution Various ways the baroque left its mark, including city planning, architecture, garden design, sculpture, painting, and emblems. "The cover alone will stop you in your tracks, a magnificent photograph of the Hofburg Library in Vienna. Open the cover and you will find page after page of amazingly detailed color photos of architecture, sculpture, and paintings. And to top it off, the text is generally interesting without any mindnumbing pedantic nose-in-the-air commentary. I have been an architect for 25 years and have never stopped searching for a reasonably priced book of Baroque with high quality pictures and text. This is it."
