They give a breathtaking picture of a turbulent and exciting epoch, which was at once the Age of Monarchy and a Golden Age of art. Just as its kings and queens are still exemplars of glorious majesty and shrewd statesmanship, so the artists of that century remain for us the Old Masters of European art: Caravaggio, Bernini, Tiepolo, Guardi; El Greco, Velazquez; Rubens, van Dyck; Hals, Rembrandt, Vermeer, van Ruisdael; de La Tour, Poussin, Claude, Watteau, Bourcher, Chardin. In every medium, the clash and complicity of the traditional Classical style and the newer Baroque vision bequeathed us a rich treasure."--Page  of cover.
