Can anyone recommend books-albums that are illustrated and with interesting information about Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture?

Would google books help? I've tried typing and this-is-what-I-got.

Sharing names would be helpful, for instance I can learn a lot more about what the Baroque epoch was all about by gazing at an Artemisia Gentileschi painting than by looking at a building. It was an overly rich, and equally melodramatic style. I don't think it aspired to look pretty. They were seeking tacky, and they achieved tacky, with a certain darkness that was meant to be a part of the Baroque style ever since the start.

I hope other users can provide more helpful insight to you.

igitur quod duae partes e crassitudine corinthiorum adiciuntur,
efficiunt excelsitate speciem earum graciliorem.

I need a concrete example(s) not some random search results. Because I have some books about Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Modernism, Modern architecture, civil engineering etc. and some of them are very disappointing.
