In between, it deals with Bernini, Borromini, Da Cortona and others - the Baroque to the Roccoco. This Pelican History of Art, like the others in the series attempts to cover painting, sculpture and architecture, breaking the time period into blocks and the reducing the blocks to the art forms. While this is a generally successful format in other books in this series, for the Baroque period, where the arts blend into one another, often seamlessly, it tends to break down.
