Baroque and Rococo: Art and Culture
by Vernon Hyde Minor


The first survey of the Baroque and Rococo periods to incorporate modern scholarship in an entertaining and accessible way.

The Baroque Church as Setting for Mystery, Propaganda, and Worship. Interiors: Papal Tombs, Altarpieces, and Ceiling Paintings. Visual Rhetoric: Styles in the Baroque and Rococo. Portraits, Still Lifes, and Genre Paintings. Landscapes and Views. Town and Country: Baroque and Rococo Places. Baroque and Rococo Settings: Domestic Spaces, Furniture, and Gardens. Quarrels with the Baroque: How Eighteenth-century French and Italian Art Tried to Repudiate its Past. For anyone interested in Art History, particularly the Baroque and Rococo periods.
