Why François du Quesnoy Should Have Dy’d Mad”: A consideration of Roman baroque sculptors’ intentions.

When executing their works, Roman baroque sculptors took into account both the placement of the finished object — in niches, above eye level, or on the sidewalls of chapels — and the available light. The lecture discusses how the artists adapted their art to fit a specific site, and how it shouldbe seen.
