Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Published to accompany an exhibition held at the Getty Museum in 2009, this beautifully produced, slightly oversized volume (9.25x11") offers 11 accessible essays on various aspects of the painting movement that occurred in late-16th-century Bologna, and the later reception and collecting of this art. The origins, significance, and influence of the naturalistic style of the Carraci, Lanfranco, Giuseppe Maria Crespi, and Guercino are discussed in essays by art historians, including curators at the Getty and at the Staatliche Kunstsammlung in Dresden, Germany, which lent many of the paintings in the show. Beyond its association with the exhibition, this volume provides an excellent introduction to an artistic movement that paved the way for the Baroque. Not indexed.
