Details

One third of the works of the Neopolitan painter Francesco de Mura (1696–1782) were destroyed when the Abbey of Monte Cassino was bombed in 1944, plunging the artist into even deeper obscurity. This volume accompanied an exhibition that toured America in 2017, aiming to revive the reputation and appreciation of De Mura as one the last great Baroque masters: it presents reproductions and commentaries on 40 surviving works and associated sketches, along with essays on his life and work.
