Art and Architecture in France, 1500-1700 by Anthony F. Blunt
Book DescriptionThe sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in France were an epoch of spectacular artistic activity, exemplified by the chateaux of the Loire valley, the palace of Versailles, the paintings of Poussin and Claude, and the sculpture of Coysevox, which echo the political and cultural importance of France and the "Sun King." Anthony Blunt presents major artists and their principal works chronologically, provides an overview of the main projects of the period and of the artistic personalities behind them, and clearly sets the historical context. This new edition, of one of the classics of the Pelican History of Art series, has been revised and updated with color illustrations and a new bibliography.

Pietro da Cortona and Roman Baroque Architecture, Hardback (July 2008)» View all books by Anthony F. Blunt
At first, a successful painter of the Roman Baroque, Pietro (Berrettini) da Cortona (1597-1669) soon emerged as an architect of equal stature. This book focuses on Cortona's buildings and projects and to assess his position in Roman Baroque architecture. It discusses Cortona's major commissions, particularly SS Luca e Martina.
UK Kirkus Review » The fourth edition of this seminal work covers the historical background of the period in relation to the artistic output achieved - most significantly in the sphere of architecture. Once the influence of the earlier Italian Renaissance had crossed into France, largely brought by Italian artists who sought profitable commissions outside the Italian peninsula, artistic learning and patronage bloomed and even managed to survive the disastrous Wars of Religion in the second half of the 16th century. In an age which produced Fontainebleau, and impressive artists in all of the disciplines, there is much to admire in this detailed study which is thoroughly illustrated in black and white. (Kirkus UK)
