About This Item

1900. Bernini. VIII, 455 pp. scholarly monograph on the Italian sculptor and architect, with preface by Adolfo Venturi, containing a chronological list of works, indices, extensive notes including bibliographic material, with 263 illustrations total including text illustrations and plates. Large 4to. Full leather with raised spine, wear to extremities and along spine. Milan (Ulrico Hoepli) 1900. Freitag 827. In his preface to this volume, Venturi wrote "(Fraschetti) ha ben compreso come convenisse staccarsi dalle biografie del Baldinucci e del figlio del Bernini, per ricostruir la vita gloriosa del grande scultore secondo i criteri della critica moderna. Associare alle ricerche archivistiche lo studio diretto immediato dell'opera d'arte, raccogliere il maggior numero di elementi storici e di osservazioni stilistiche, vedere e rivedere tutto, metter a riscontro le opere diverse per iscorgere la linea che le unisce, e la luce che le rischiara: tale la meta dello scrittore, raggiunta con la forza e l'entusiasmo della sua giovinezza."
A very good copy of the monumental Bernini biography.
