Item description for Fierce Reality: Italian Masters from Seventeenth Century Naples by Thomas J. Loughman...

The 17th-century was a period of extraordinary achievement in Italian painting that placed Naples at the center of international artistic taste. The almost continuous artistic accomplishments in Naples at this time left an imprint on the history of European art. This exhibition catalog presents 50 paintings–including both familiar icons and many important works visiting North America for the first time–by such artists as Artemisia Gentileschi, Luca Giordano, Francesco Guarino, Salvatore Rosa, Jusepe De Ribera, and more. The paintings depict religious and secular subjects, still life, portraiture, and 17th-century city life in Naples, including the ravages of rebellion and plague, and the moments of great triumph.
Thomas Loughman is curator of European Art at the Phoenix Art Museum. He is a specialist in Italian Art and particularly interested in drawings, sculpture, and art patronage.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fierce Reality: Italian Masters from Seventeenth Century Naples?

Bad painting  Feb 21, 2008
I had been looking forward to this book with great anticipation as I love italian painting, and added to this was the fantastic cover, and Skira prestige. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of paintings like the one on the cover - otherwise, what you get are bad examples of neapolitan art. The painters chosen appear rather mediocre, with some really dreadful hacks - paintings crowded with figures without any redeeming traits of composition. All this book seemed to do was to inform me that Naples had some perfectly awful XVII century painters. I would definately not advise anyone to buy this book until they have seen it in a bookshop and know exactly what they are getting.
