Bergamo: Banca Popolare di Bergamo / Bolis, 1989. Hardcover. Fine/As New (well cared for by a former gallery owner). Glossy, butter-yellow boards with color image and black lettering. 309 pp. with color plates and bw illustrations throughout, numbered per page. Text in Italian. Antonio Balestra, seen in the wholeness of his untiring activity...appears not as "virtuoso" improvisor or sparkling innovator but as a lucid interpreter of a classical language voiced by his polished linear rhythms and the preciosity of his soft shades. In fact, he played an historical role of effective importance in his age, in polemics with the typical Venetian rococo. This aspect of the artist is well shown in this monograph and enriched by an ample essay. - from the back cover. From the series I Pittori Bergamaschi, published by Banca Popolare di Bergamo.
