 About the Book 

This book accompanies the National Gallery of Scotlands major Festival exhibition in 1998, a joint celebration of the fourth centenaries of the births of the two greatest sculptors of the Italian Baroque era, Gianlorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) and Alessandro Algardi (1598-1654). The Baroque is a style renowned for its elaborate combination of materials and its unification of various branches of the arts into a harmonious whole. This book will include detailed information and commentaries by leading authorities on the marble sculptures, bronzes, terracottas, medals and drawings produced by these two great artists in what was a fascinating and highly influential period in European art and design.
