Was $92.50; save 33%! Surveys the achievements of a noted Italian painter whose oeuvre consists largely of somber-toned, highly melodramatic images of storm-tossed landscapes and gloomy interiors peopled with small, often frenetically animated figures of monks, nuns, witches and gypsies. There are excellent reproductions and individual discussions of 65 paintings and 20 drawings spanning Magnasco's career in Genoa and Milan as well as of 36 canvases and works on paper by Salvator Rosa, Sebstiano and Marco Ricci, Domenico Piola and other artists of the 17th and early 18th centuries. Nine well-illustrated essays trace Magnasco's critical fortunes and examine formal and thematic aspects of his work in the context of cultural and religious currents of the period.
