  • Elements of Art Historiography in Medieval Textsby D. Aalders; E.F. van der Grinten

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 94.17

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 140.00

    The sculptors of the Roman Baroque, including masters such as Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Alessandro Algardi, and Giuliano Finelli, managed to achieve an unprecedented vivaciousness in their works.
