Hard cover book titled Baroque and Rococo by Sacheverell Sitwell, First American Edition, 1967, 306 pages.
This magnificently illustrated volume, written with verve insight, and remarkable perceptiveness, is one of those rare works of art history that conveys in masterly prose the intimate relationship that exists between an art style, the special conditions that prevailed during the time in which it flourished and which led to its evolution, and the place of its origin.
Illustrated with 16 plates in full color and 96 in monochrome, this book is more than an informative work of art history, it is delightful reading by a great modern master of English prose. An unprecedented and unusual survey of one of the most controversial periods in the history of art, it establishes once and for all the importance of this era as a connecting link between the art of the Renaissance and that of more modern times.
This book is in VG condition, pages clean and intact, and the binding is tight. Would make a fabulous addition to any library
