Baroque and Later Paintings in the Ashmolean Museum
'Readable, entirely reliable, and splendidly informative. What’s more, it is outstandingly generous in its provision of comparative illustrations, which means, for example, that we can compare Barocci’s exquisite oil sketch for his Madonna of the Rosary with the finished altarpiece in Senigallia and two of the preparatory drawings for it' - Evening Standard
A beautifully produced and accessible collections catalogue featuring the Ashmolean's collection of Italian, French and Spanish works from about 1600 onwards
Baroque and Later Paintings in the Ashmolean feature masterpieces by Nicolas Poussin, Claude Lorrain, Domenichino, Giambattista Tiepolo and Francesco Guardi.
The collection of Italian, French and Spanish works from about 1600 onwards was mainly formed in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, reflecting the interests of a University museum and its benefactors. Changing perceptions of art of the Baroque age can be traced in the histories of opinions and ownership that this catalogue provides.
