9780064300773: Baroque (Icon Editions)

This is a nonchronological introduction to Baroque, one of the great periods of European art. John Martin's descriptions of the essential characteristics of the Baroque help one to gain an understanding of the style. His illustrations are informative and he has clearly looked with a fresh eye at the works of art themselves. In addition to the more than 200 illustrations, the volume contains an appendix of translated documents.

Review:

"This has no rival as a nonchronological introduction to one of the great periods of European art."
-- "Choice"

"Sensitive and reliable. His illustrations are well chosen and he has clearly looked with a fresh and inquiring mind at the works of art themselves."
-- Ellis Waterhouse, "The Burlington Magazine"

"Martin's perceptive delineation of the essential characteristics of the Baroque results in a convincing conceptual scheme for an understanding of the style. Vivid characterizations of the masterpieces add to Martin's generalization. In addition to the more than 200 conveniently arranged and well-annotated illustrations, the volume contains an appendix of translated documents. There does not, I believe, exist a better introduction to the Baroque."
-- "Library Journal"
