CARLO DOLCI COMPLETE CATALOGUE OF THE PAINTINGS

discussants: Edgar Peters Bowron and Eve Straussmann-Pflanzer

a book by Francesca Baldassari

Twenty years after its first appearance in 1995, Francesca Baldassari presents a revised and updated edition of her acclaimed monograph on the most important painter of the Florentine Seicento: Carlo Dolci (1616-1687). In the present volume the author provides further insight into Dolci's artistic personality with the aid of unpublished documents and paintings, reconstructing his widespread critical 'fortune', as well as 'misfortune', and dedicating to him essays that interpret his art from a variety of different angles: his early artistic training, the influence of Humanism and Renaissance painting and sculpture, his relationship with Medici patronage, and the far-reaching importance of his own artistic legacy. Francesca Baldassari has made a fundamental contribution to our knowledge of Tuscan painting of the Seicento and Settecento. In addition to her work on Dolci she has written monographs on Cristoforo Munari (1998), curating the exhibition dedicated to the artist the following year in Reggio Emilia (1999), Giovanni Domenico Ferretti (2002) and Simone Pignoni (2008). She is also the author of La collezione Piero Bigongiari. Il Seicento fiorentino tra 'favola' e dramma (2004), also in English, and La pittura del Seicento a Firenze. Indice degli artisti e delle loro opere (2009). Her main area of research covers the history of Tuscan and Emilian painting in the Seicento and Settecento, on which she has written numerous articles, essays and catalogue entries for national and international exhibitions.
