    All those who viewed the exhibition at the Galleria Borghese will find this book a useful souvenir but those who did not make it to Rome will find it less than a satisfactory account of Bernini s miraculous genius The book is a catalogue but not a comprehensive monograph.

    Didn t see this at the Borghese last December when we went, but so glad to find it on Goes well beyond Bernini s works at The Borghese The photo plates are fantastic Very well done book Somethings digital cannot replace and this book and Bernini s sculptures are two of them.

    Nice, big images and quality paper, thick elegant hardcover, well written, with many details about the author and his work in a pretty big size and pretty thick book.


  5. says:

    This is quite a treat if your looking to not only see fantastic works of the Baroque period but the in depth history of the arts conception.


  6. says:

    Excellent photos and ample discussion with many photos of clay and stone work make for a great book about this great Italian sculptor.
