Visible Spirit: the Art of Gianlorenzo Bernini

Pindar Press has just published the first volume of the collected works of Irving Lavin, Professor Emeritus in the School of Historical Studies. Visible Spirit: the Art of Gianlorenzi Bernini (2007), brings his far-reaching publications together to provide a valuable resource to scholars and students and to underscore fundamental themes in the history of art: historicism, the art of commemoration, the relationship between style and meaning, the intelligence of artists -- themes that define the role of the visual arts in human communication.
