Editorial Reviews


“A complex viewpoint on continuity and rupture in art that has been rarely matched.”—Renaissance Quarterly

“[This book is] exemplary in its combination of a careful, scrupulous translation of one of the classic and complex texts of German art historiography around 1900 with the three well-informed, introductory essays which illuminate this text from different perspectives.”—Journal of Art Historiography

“The translation into English of Alois Riegl’s final book, Die Entstehung der Barockkunst in Rom, is certain to be embraced with enthusiasm by specialists and students of art history and the Baroque alike. . . . Collectively these essays offer a very fine addition to a text that is certain to open further enquiry on the late ideas of this important art historian.”—Renaissance and Reformation

“This translation of a pioneering work along with astute analyses of it clearly shows how the art of the Baroque 1550–1630 differed from but was not a decline from the early Renaissance masters.”  —Bibliothèque d’Humanisme et Renaissance
