In stock
Accompanying the National Gallery of Art exhibition A Superb Baroque: Art in Genoa 1600⁠–1750, this fully illustrated catalog presents the most extensive study of the Genoese baroque in the English language.

By the 17th century, Genoa was the banking center of Europe with a functioning republican government and enormous wealth that enabled its artists and their patrons to create a singularly rich and beautiful expression of baroque style featuring works of extraordinary material sumptuousness, visual splendor, and exuberant feeling. The first major presentation of the Genoese baroque in the United States, this landmark exhibition-accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog-presents some 130 paintings, sculptures, decorative arts, drawings, and prints.
