Italian baroque sculpture often has been criticized for portraying a sham world, distracting the spectator from its spiritual poverty by dazzling technical displays. Bruce Boucher offers a fresh view of this rich and varied subject, published to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the births of 17th-century artists Bernini and Algardi. 200 illustrations. 35 in color.
