Editorial Reviews


"Scholarly and thorough." [Four star rating] Art Times

"Old classics and new team up in this exciting anthology that will serve students and scholars alike for years to come. The Seicento field is not only represented here by broad discussions of style, art theory, and patronage but also by fascinating case studies of artistic practice, gender, science, and the art market . . . A shot of adrenalin for this important area of art history." David M. Stone, University of Delaware

"Those of us working in baroque studies are lucky to have some of the best scholars and essayists in the discipline of art history writing about European, and specifically Italian, art of the 17th and 18th centuries; we are doubly lucky that Susan Dixon has gathered together so many of them for this volume." Vernon Hyde-Minor, University of Colorado at Boulder

From the Back Cover

Grandeur, intensity, passion, and motion – these are the defining characteristics of art created during the Baroque period in 17th and early 18th-century Italy. This rich and turbulent era heralds the Age of Enlightenment, and Italian art engages closely with key intellectual debates of the period, including the secular vs. the sacred; the role of the individual within a Catholic state; and the rise of cultural politics over military might.

This anthology presents classic and recent scholarship on Italian art from 1600-1750, highlighting key debates with which art historians continue to grapple. Its essays explore the concept of style or the visuality of art; the creation and utilization of art; artistic communication as projected and experienced; and artists’ interactions with the ancient world and the new sciences. Italian Baroque Art is an innovative, intellectual, and instructional collection for students and lovers of 17th and 18th-century art.
