Synopsis: Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) was the most influential sculptor of his age. Inventive and skilled, he virtually created the Baroque style. In his religious sculptures he excelled at capturing movement and extreme emotion, uniting figures with their setting to create a single conception of overwhelming intensity that expressed the fervour of Counter-Reformation Rome. Intensity and drama also characterize his portraits and world-famous Roman fountains.

About the Author: Rudolf Wittkower was one of the most distinguished art historians of the twentieth century.

Book Description 4. Auflage. Bernini (1598-1680) war der größte und einflussreichste Bidhauer seiner Zeit. Der erfinderische und handwerklich geschickte Künstler war einer der größten Künstler des Barocks. In seinen religiösen Skulpturen brachte er es zur Meisterschaft in der Darstellung von Bewegung und extremer Emotion, indem er die Figuren mit ihrer Umgebung in einem einzigen Entwurf von überwältigender Intensität verschmolz und so die Leidenschaft des Roms der Gegenreformation meisterhaft zum Ausdruck brachte. Intensität und Dramatik charakterisieren auch seine bemerkenswerten Porträts und seine weltberühmten römischen Brunnen. Wittkowers klassische Monografie und catalogue raisonné ist seit 1955 das Standardwerk über Bernini. Es ist nun in einer aktualisierten, erweiterten Ausgabe erhältlich. Die knappe, meisterliche Studie ist eine maßgebende Einführung in Berninis Arbeit, während der Katalog detaillierte, wissenschaftliche und aktualisierte Informationen zu seinem Gesamtwerk bietet. »Wittkower war einer der namhaftesten Kunsthistoriker des 20. Jahrhunderts. Die Klarheit des Diskurses und die unglaublichen Schönheit der Reproduktionen dieses erstmals 1955 veröffentlichten Bandes wurden nie übertroffen. Die Schwarzweiß-Fotografien von Berninis atemberaubenden Skulpturen geben das zeitlose Wunder ihrer Präzision und Vitalität optimal wieder.« (Booklist) »Wittkowers Bernini, ein eleganter Überblick, der tiefe Einsichten vermittelt und bei profunder Wissenschaftlichkeit dennoch leicht lesbar bleibt, genießt zu Recht fast kanonischen Status.« (Burlington Magazine) (Text engl.) 28 x 25 cm, 320 S., 361 Abb., davon 31 in Farbe, paperback.
