The years around 1700 were marked by transformations in European and colonial capital cities. This volume in the series Studies in the History of Art includes contributions by eleven historians of architecture, each focusing on a specific city or country: Naples, Rome, Vienna, Stockholm, Saint Petersburg, England, Amsterdam, Cádiz, Lisbon, Quebec City, and Lima. The result is a cross section that allows a comparative reading of baroque architecture: from country to country, from region to region, and from the Old World to the New.
