  • About The Artist

      Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680)
      Preeminent Baroque sculptor Gain Lorenzo Bernini lived in 17th century Rome. Bernini's Baroque style was a powerful influence on the architecture of his time. In addition to his sculptures Bernini's works include the colonnades of St. Peters the faade of Barberini's palace and the design for three churches.

      The son of Florentine sculptor Bernini was considered a prodigy in his time. Mastering sculpting techniques of marble while still a child many thought that the young Bernini would surpass his father's greatness. Antique Greek and Roman statues in the Vatican inspired early Bernini sculptures.

      Bernini's many sculptural masterpieces include The Rape of Proserpina which displays extreme attention to detail; even the woman's marble skin shows dimpling. Apollo and Daphne widely admired since Bernini's day expresses drama and also a conceit: As the character Daphne is being turned into a tree the sculpture antithetically appears to come to life.

      Bernini was also an accomplished architect having been commissioned to create the piazza colonnades and high alter of St. Peters Basilica in Rome its centerpiece being the Dove of Peace. Being a fervent Romantic Catholic who attended daily mass Bernini's devotion to Rome shaped his work then and always. Thus Bernini's sculptures were conscious attempts to be emotional stimuli pointing towards piety.
