Gianlorenzo Bernini erwarb seinen Ruhm vor allem als der große Baumeister und Bildhauer des römischen Barock: als Architekt von Petersdom und Petersplatz und als Schöpfer einzigartig bewegter, dramatischer Skulpturen. In seinem langen Leben diente er nicht weniger als acht Päpsten und beeindruckte die Zeitgenossen als Universalgenie. Arne Karsten leuchtet in seiner glänzend geschriebenen Biographie neben dem vielfältigen Werk Berninis auch das soziale und politische Umfeld aus, in dem der Künstler agierte und seine Erfolge feierte. Zugleich erzählt er von den Intrigen, den Exzessen und Wutausbrüchen des Künstlers, der mit seinen hochgestellten Auftraggebern zwar meisterhaft umzugehen wusste, aber alles andere als ein farbloser Karrierist war.

Examining Bernini's works from 1665 on, from Paris and Rome, this book demonstrates the wealth of material still to be drawn from close visual and material examination, archival research, and comparative textual analysis. On the whole, this collection deals with Bernini's position as the leading creator of portraits - in oils, marble, monumental architecture, and metaphor - of some of the most powerful political players of his day. These studies speak to the growing distance of Gallic absolutism from the fading dreams of papal hegemony over Europe, and to the complexities of Bernini's role as mouthpiece, obstacle, and flatterer of the Princes of the Papal States.

Michelangelo was one of the biggest international art stars of his time, but being Michelangelo was no easy thing: he was stalked by fans, lauded and lambasted by critics, and depicted in unauthorized portraits. Still Lives traces the process by which artists such as Michelangelo, Dürer, and Titian became early modern celebrities. Artists had been subjects of biographies since antiquity, but Renaissance artists were the first whose faces were sometimes as recognizable as their art. Maria Loh shows how this transformation was aided by the rapid expansion of portraiture and self-portraiture as independent genres in painting and sculpture. She examines the challenges confronting artists in this new image economy: What did it mean to be an image maker haunted by one's own image? How did these changes affect the everyday realities of artists and their workshops? And how did images of artists contribute to the way they envisioned themselves as figures in a history that would outlive them? Richly illustrated, Still Lives is an original exploration of the invention of the artist portrait and a new form of secular stardom.

Gian Lorenzo Bernini was the greatest sculptor of the Baroque period, and yet--surprisingly--there has never before been a major exhibition of his sculpture in North America. Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture--on view from August 5 through October 26, 2008, at the J. Paul Getty Museum and from November 28, 2008, through March 8, 2009, at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa--showcases portrait sculptures from all phases of the artist's long career, from the very early Antonio Coppola of 1612 to Clement X of about 1676, one of his last completed works. Bernini's portrait busts were masterpieces of technical virtuosity; at the same time, they revealed a new interest in psychological depth. Bernini's ability to capture the essential character of his subjects was unmatched and had a profound influence on other leading sculptors of his day, such as Alessandro Algardi, Giuliano Finelli, and Francesco Mochi. Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture is a groundbreaking study that features drawings and paintings by Bernini and his contemporaries. Together they demonstrate not only the range, skill, and acuity of these masters of Baroque portraiture but also the interrelationship of the arts in seventeenth-century Rome.

Die Frage nach den historischen Bedingungen und Möglichkeiten für den Anspruch Frankreichs auf die kulturelle Hegemonie innerhalb der europäischen Staatenwelt steht im Mittelpunkt des Buches. Ein solcher Anspruch gewann unter der Regierung Ludwigs XIV. (1661-1715) in Kunst und Architektur maßgeblich am Vorbild Roms Gestalt. Mit dieser Orientierung ist auch die Grundabsicht der französischen Kulturpolitik in dieser Epoche benannt. Sie zielte auf die Ablösung der politischen und geistlichen Titel, die Rom zu vergeben hatte, und auf den Erwerb des Status einer Universalmonarchie. Eine umfassende Rekonstruktion der Kunstbeziehungen zwischen Paris und Rom im historischen und ideengeschichtlichen Kontext belegt nicht nur deren Dauer und Intensität. Sie erschließt mit den stilistischen Prägungen auch den grundsätzlichen Programmcharakter der Hofkunst Ludwigs XIV.
