"Gian Lorenzo Bernini was the greatest and most influential sculptor of his age. Endlessly inventive and gifted with extraordinary technical skill, he virtually created the Baroque style. In his religious sculptures he excelled at capturing movement and extreme emotion, uniting figures with their setting to create a single conception of overwhelming intensity that perfectly expressed the fervour of Counter-Reformation Rome. Intensity and drama also characterize his mythological groups, his remarkable portraits and his world-famous Roman fountains. Rudolf Wittkowerʼs classic monograph and catalogue raisonne has remained the standard work on Bernini ever since its first publication in 1955. The concise but masterly survey provides an authoritative introduction to all aspects of Berniniʼs sculpture, while the full catalogue gives detailed, scholarly and up to date information on his complete oeuvre. This is the one indispensable book on Bernini for all students, scholars and art-lovers"--Publisher
