This is an introduction to one of the great periods of Western art and provides a clear, dramatic account of the French art world under Louis XIII and Louis XIV. Drawing on research that places the art of the period in its context of religious and philosophical ideas, Christopher Allen provides the means for the reader to judge the meaning, relevance, success or failure of the art of this period.
