Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Festivities such as those exalting the court of Louis XIV, the celebration of James II's London coronation, and the commemoration of the peace celebrations of 1749 at The Hague culminated in dazzling pyrotechnical displays. These were in turn reproduced as prints, paintings, and narrative descriptions. This unique book examines the propagandistic and rhetorical functions these printed records came to serve as vehicles of aesthetic, cultural, and emotional significance.

Synopsis:

Designed for scholars and students, this series provides annotated bibliographies and short texts and catalogs relating to the extensive and diverse collections of primary materials held by the Getty Research Institute.

Examines images of European fireworks dating from approximately 1580 to 1815.

Description:

This is a historical look at fireworks and similar pyro devices during the 16-18 centuries. The historic look is through fine artwork of the time. This was a museum show that was put into book form for your enjoyment. A very different and rare book. For the true pyro lover to enjoy.
