Summary
"Baroque: Style in the Age of Magnificence offers a new approach to a style that has sometimes been misunderstood. Broadening the traditional view, this book demonstrates for the first time how the style occurs in art, in architecture and in design and the applied arts, not only throughout Europe but all over the world from Goa and the Philippines in the east to Central and South America in the west." "Illustrated with carefully selected and rarely seen objects from public and private collections, the book explores the contexts for the development of the Baroque style, its ornamental language and the key theme of performance and the visual arts. Attractive feature spreads highlight a variety of topics, including opera, fireworks and religious rituals, and investigate churches and palaces as showcases for the pomp and splendour of Baroque art." "Published to accompany a major V&A exhibition, beautifully illustrated and international in its scope, Baroque: Style in the Age of Magnificence is an indispensable work of reference, and an enlightening investigation into the nature and significance of one of the most fascinating phases of Western Art."--BOOK JACKET
