Publisher Description

Guido Cagnacci (1601-1663) was one of the most original and idiosyncratic painters in seventeenth-century Italy. Trained in Bologna and Rome, he led an extraordinary life, between Romagna, Venice and Vienna. This book examines Cagnacci's life and his eccentric work, from his early religious paintings to the later canvases showing ancient heroines and allegorical and biblical figures, often in defiantly sensual attitudes. This is the first book in English devoted to Cagnacci in almost 30 years and provides an overview of his astonishing artistic achievements. AUTHOR: Xavier F. Salomon is Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator at The Frick Collection. SELLING POINTS: The latest in a run of highly successful books published for the Frick Collection, New York The first book in English devoted to Cagnacci in almost 30 years Beautiful images allow unparalleled insight into the work of an idiosyncratic, sensual painter 50 colour

Review

What we know of Cagnacci's biography has been narrated by Xavier F. Salomon in a readable, endearing catalogue produced by the Frick in conjunction with Scala Arts Publishers in honor of the occasion. This gold-stamped, cloth-covered, novella-sized volume, generously illustrated with matte color plates, is itself a minor masterpiece of art publishing. -- Franklin Einspruch The New Criterion, January 5, 2017
