Item Description...
Following the completion of the construction of new St Peters in the second decade of the 17th century, a series of monumental altarpieces was commissioned to decorate its altars. The leading artists of the day contributed to the project among them Algardi, Bernini, Cortona, Domenichino, Guercino, Lanfaranco, Poussin, Sacchi, Vouet, and Valentin and the works they produced include some of the most celebrated masterpieces of the Roman Baroque. This book considers the altarpieces of St Peters collectively, within the liturgical and artistic programme of the building as a whole. Louise Rice takes a comprehensive approach to this critical chapter in the history of Italian Baroque art, offering insight into the mechanisms, motives, and meanings of papal patronage in the premier church of Catholicism.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A very scholarly book  Mar 12, 2004
As a big fan of St. Peter's Basilica, I found this book to be one of the most scholarly treatments available in English.

It's not for the average person looking for a tour guide, but if you're interested in the artists of this period or the politics involved in selecting altarpieces for the Basilica, then Louise Rice's book is a well documented resource. She even gives the background of the subject matter (saint, miracle, etc) better than I have been able to find elsewhere.

My only wish is that the book covered all the altarpieces. For example, the Transfiguration Altar based on Raphael's painting is not covered.
