Bernini and the birth of Baroque portrait sculpture by Gian Lorenzo Bernini ( Book )
10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gian Lorenzo Bernini was the greatest sculptor of the Baroque period, and yet - surprisingly - there has never been a major North American exhibition of his work. Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture - on view from August 5 through October 26, 2008, at the J. Paul Getty Museum and from November 28, 2008, through March 8, 2009, at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa - showcases portrait sculptures from all phases of the artist's long career, from the very early Antonio Coppola of 1612 to Clement X of about 1676." "Bernini's portrait busts were masterpieces of technical virtuosity; at the same time, they revealed a new interest in psychological depth. Bernini's ability to capture the essential character of his subjects was unmatched and had a profound influence on other leading sculptors of his day, such as Alessandro Algardi, Giuliano Finelli, and Francesco Mochi." "Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture is a groundbreaking study that also features drawings and paintings by Bernini and his contemporaries. Together they demonstrate not only the range, skill, and acuity of these masters of Baroque portraiture but also the interrelationship of the arts in seventeenth-century Rome."--BOOK JACKET

L'ascension de Charles Le Brun : liens sociaux et production artistique by Bénédicte Gady ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Comment Charles Le Brun devint-il premier peintre de Louis XIV? Tirant profit de la découverte de nouvelles oeuvres peintes, dessinées et gravées, de nombreux documents d'archives inédits et d'une lecture critique des sources, cet ouvrage reconsidère l'ascension du peintre en articulant réseau social et création artistique. Issu d'un milieu familial modeste, mais lié au monde de l'écriture et à celui de la gravure pour lequel il produisit ses premières oeuvres, Le Brun n'était pas un héritier. Mais il fut assurément une " créature ", au sens du XVIIe siècle : la protection du chancelier Séguier lui permit d'accéder à des commandes prestigieuses du cardinal de Richelieu comme plus tard du roi, de fréquenter un milieu de lettrés, de partir à Rome en compagnie de Nicolas Poussin, ou encore de consolider les fondements de l'Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture. À la tête de chantiers de décoration à Paris et à Vaux-le-Vicomte, Le Brun sollicita de nombreux collaborateurs avec lesquels il entretint des liens juridiques, artistiques et sociaux dont l'analyse éclaire les modes de production au Grand Siècle et invite à remettre en cause la conception actuelle de la notion d'" atelier "."
