BAROQUE VISUAL RHETORIC. Vernon Hyde Minor. University of Toronto Press, 2016. Toronto Italian Studies. 284 pp. with 51 ills. 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781442648791 In English.
Publisher's description: Intricate, expressive, given to grandeur and even excess, Baroque art as a style is inseparable from the meanings it seeks to convey. Vernon Hyde Minor's Baroque Visual Rhetoric probes this combination of style and message and -- equally importantly -- the methodological basis on which the critical art historian comes to establish that meaning. Drawing on a breathtaking range of critical literature, from the German founders of art history as an academic discipline to Heidegger, Derrida, and de Man, Minor considers the issue through a series of Baroque masterpieces: Bernini's Baldacchinoin St. Peter's Basilica, the statues in the church of San Giovanni in Laterano, Borromini's church of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza, Baciccio's frescoes in the church of Il Gesł, the paintings of Philippe de Champaigne, and the Corsini Chapel in San Giovanni in Laterano.
