Passion For Baroque Painting - The Ducrot Collection

Letizia Treves

Publisher Quodlibet

ISBN 9788874628698

The forty-three paintings presented in this catalogue raisonné of the seventeenth- century paintings in the Isabella and Vittorio Ducrot Collection are analyzed in depth by the scholar Letizia Treves. For each painting, accurately reproduced, the passages from one collection to another are reconstructed, and the relevant critical debate is discussed. Each entry ends with a detailed bibliography. The concise, penetrating style of the entries written by Letizia Treves examines a century of painting, the Italian Seicento, also touching on France and Germany, a sole sixteenth-century antecedent (Annibale Carracci), and rare offshoots in the eighteenth century.
