'...Significant and original ... Lagerloef assembles here a group of monuments from France, Rome, and Stockholm, which allows for a synchronic interpretation and reading of significant issues of visuality and content across power regimes and the long time period of the Baroque style in Europe ... it is the first comprehensive examination in the history of art of these galleries, and as such makes an important scholarly contribution from which others may draw further conclusions.' Catherine M. Soussloff, University of British Columbia, Canada 'Four words featured in the title of this book-fate, glory, love, and power-are among the most salient concerns of the Baroque period. Margaretha Rossholn Lagerloef's book examines their manifestations in the spectacular cycles decorating the representative architectural spaces of sovereignty.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'Lagerloef ... brings these places to thought-provoking life.' Seventeenth-Century News 'Lagerloef deserves praise for being the first to study gallery decorations as a separate genre developing through time, with a focus on the establishment of traditions ...'
