Drawing on much previously unpublished research, art historian Charles Avery rescues Bernini from critical neglect and offers a thoroughgoing reevaluation of this great artist's multifaceted career. Throughout, 400 illustrations, including eighty magnificent color plates, capture the richness of Bernini's work as never before -- and reveal many extraordinary details that are difficult to see even on the originals.
