Taking examples from all media and genres, this book is a comprehensive exploration of this emotionally powerful and geographically pervasive style, tracing its development from Rome, centre of Papal and princely power.

Carefully selected and rarely seen objects from public and private collections illustrate traditions of ornament, performance and visual art, while stunning spreads examine how churches and palaces became showcases for the pomp and splendour of Baroque art.
