Inhaltsangabe: Santa Maria della Salute is one of Venice's best known monuments and the masterpiece of its architect, Baldassare Longhena. In this study of the church, Andrew Hopkins provides new documentation and autograph drawings, published here for the first time, that enable an accurate history of the building. As well as presenting important information on the construction of the church, he also provides an analysis of Santa Maria della Salute's function as the site of an annual feast day procession and the impact of ceremonial requirements on the architectural design.
Practicality, politics and national pride are woven together to produce an elegant and uncluttered book about a church that does, as the author hopes it will, emerge as one of the most 'precious and innovative churches' not only of the decade but also of the era..." The Art Book
"Four appendixes (90 documents on the building history, 65 of whch are previously unpublished; a catalog of drawings, sketches, and paintings, an analysis of the original design; a description of the ceremonial books of the Venetian Republic) and an invaluable critical bibliography complete a book that fills a gap in the field and is indispensable for the scholar of baroque architecture."
