2 From the Sculptor's Hand: Italian Baroque Terracottas from the State Hermitage Museum Gosudarstvennyi Ermitazh (Russia); Wardropper, Ian; Art Institute of Chicago; Androsov, Sergei; Kosareva, Nina; Walker, Dean; Androsov, S.
Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. Univ of Washington Press 1998 086559158x / 9780865591585 Soft Cover Brand New / MINT Quatro 
This is a sparkling BRAND NEW BOOK -- softcover -- which is in MINT / PRISTINE condition, and its beauty will knock your socks off. It concentrates on the Baroque art of Italian Terracottas (in this case, in the Russian Hermitage Museum). All of which fulfills the suggestion that the book is replete with beautifully photographed illustrations. On page 45 of this book, Stefano Maderno's work on Nicodemus with the Body of Christ is absolutely stirring. It is a Pieta of the type generally reserved for Jesus' mother, Mary. We know that Nicodemus offered his tomb for the burial of the Saviour, and this is a most stirring work of art. Then from page 50, enjoy the noble work on the Apostle Paul by Alessandro Algardi. These are but two examples of the magnificent display in this handsome book, which is highly recommended.
