From Library Journal
A welcome scholarly study in English on this 17th-century Italian sculptor who, although always overshadowed by the genius of Bernini, was still an important artist of the period with sev eral papal commissions among his oeu vre. Basing her text on documentary evidence as well as on the visual evi dence of the artist's work, Montagu re vises misconceptions that have been handed down from Algardi's early biog raphers. The superb catalogue raisonne of the sculpture and decorative works includes documentation from the pri mary sources, information on lost works, and a careful tracing of the vari ous versions, casts, and derivative works. The useful index and bibliogra phy are to be commended, as is Monta gu's clear explanation of her catalog ar rangement and entry codes. Highly recommended. Lynell A. Morr, John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art Lib., Sarasota, Fla.
