Written in a fluent and lively style by one of the most well-respected art historians in her field, Harris's Seventeenth-Century Art and Architecture is an eminently readable introduction for students and art-lovers alike

The most up-to-date and authoritative account of all the major players of the period, this book covers the latest developments in research and is lavishly illustrated with more than 400 images, over 200 in colour.

One hundred additional colour pictures in this second edition support substantial new material. Chapter 3 encompasses more on Spanish religious sculpture, and architectural marvels such as El Escorial and the monastery of La Encarnacion in Madrid.

The architects Francois Mansart and Louis Le Vau in the French chapter are given mere prominence, as is sculpture, with extended discussion of the works of Coysevox, Girardon, and Warin.

Chapter 5 on the Dutch Republic includes new text on the painters van Ostade and van Ruisdael, while the final chapter on English painters has been expanded to include William Dobson and the miniaturist Samuel Cooper.
