Masters Of Italian Baroque Painting
The range and scope of the works presented in this volume is truly impressive, from the ruggedness of Salvator Rosa’s landscapes and sweeping gestures and visual richness of Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo to the dramatic shadows and relief of Gentileschi. The volume features signature works by Canaletto, Caravaggio, Carlo Dolci, Artemisia Gentileschi, Guercino, Sebastiano Ricci, Salvator Rosa and Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo. To this day the works by Caravaggio, Gentileschi and Tiepolo in particular are recognized as masterpieces in which Italian baroque painting reached the pinnacle of its development in terms of visual excitement and movement.Works by lesser-known artists such as Gioacchino Assereto, Alessandro Turchi, Lorenzo de Caro and Filippo Falciatore also find their featured place as well alongside those of their great masters.
