This volume focuses on Italian and Spanish sculpture in the Getty Museum's collection, including such exceptional works as Antico's Bust of a Young Man, Benvenuto Cellini's Satyr, Gianlorenzo Bernini's Boy with a Dragon, Giuliano Finelli's Bust of a Noblewoman, and Antonio Canova's Apollo Crowning Himself. In addition to presenting copious research on the history and iconography of the sculptures, much of it based on new findings, this lavishly illustrated book includes detailed discussions of the manufacture, materials, and condition of each work.
The technical descriptions in the catalogue entries are complemented by appendixes containing X-rays of selected sculptures and analyses of the bronze alloys. The catalogue is abundantly illustrated, including multiple views of each sculpture.
