    By the end of his life there was a reaction against the extravagance of his work. Scholars like Johann Winckelmann believed art should appeal to the mind whereas Bernini's art appealed excessively to the senses. In fact, "Baroque" was initially deemed a derogatory term in regards to the theatrical nature of Bernini's and other artists' work. As a teenager, Bernini studied the art in the Vatican, and his talent as a sculptor was soon noticed: he received his first commission from the papal family at His career would span over 70 years, and as art historian Rudolph Wittkower writes, “It was he more than any other artist who gave Rome its .

    “Franco Mormando’s fascinating book is a welcome addition to the Bernini literature. It is both a biography of the artist and a portrait of Roman Baroque culture. Though written for a general audience, it reveals an impressive command of the specialist scholarship—in art history, literature, and history. Gian Lorenzo Bernini (–), sculptor, architect, painter, and playwright, was the most influential artist of seventeenth-century Rome and, indeed, one of the leading creative forces in European art for most of that century. He is universally recognized as one of the creators of the vastly popular Roman Baroque style, which was quickly disseminated throughout all of Europe.

This book is a thorough discussion of the sculptural works of Gianlorenzo Bernini by probably the pre-eminent scholar of Baroque art.

It is filled with superb photographs, mostly black-and-white. This is a scholarly work as well as being very visually s:   During the Counter-Reformation (the official Catholic reaction to the rise of Protestantism), Gianlorenzo Bernini sculpted a life-sized sculpture of David for Pope Paul V’s nephew, but the intended audience was actually for Catholic pilgrims.

An important aspect of the Counter-Reformation was the use of art as propaganda. Churches were lushly and richly decorated to help. Bernini’s David (figure 1) has always reminded me of a major league pitcher winding up to throw a 95 miles an hour you seen that.

The pitcher gathers all of his strength for each pitch and puts everything he has into it. This is what Baroque art wants from us—it wants us to be able to relate to the image in our bodies, not just in our minds—to really feel it physically and. A series of over-lifesize marble statues commissioned by Cardinal Scipione Borghese for his villa in Rome announced Bernini’s novel style and established his role as the foremost sculptor in Italy.

One of these works, the Apollo and Daphne (–24; Galleria Borghese, Rome), illustrates the typically Baroque theme of metamorphosis. Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Italian artist who was perhaps the greatest sculptor of the 17th century and an outstanding architect as well.

Bernini created the Baroque style of sculpture and developed it to such an extent that other artists are of only minor importance in a discussion of that style. The rivalry between the brilliant seventeenth-century Italian architects Gianlorenzo Bernini and Francesco Borromini is the stuff of legend.

Possessed of enormous talent and ambition, these two artists -- one trained as a sculptor, the other as a stonecutter -- met as contemporaries in the building yards of St. Peter's in Rome and ended their lives as bitter enemies.4/5(36).

The following is a list of works of sculpture, architecture, and painting by the Italian Baroque artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini. The numbering follows Rudolph Wittkower's Catalogue, first published in in Gian Lorenzo Bernini: The Sculptor of the Roman Baroque. Bernini’s Michelangelo is the first comprehensive examination of Bernini’s persistent and wide-ranging imitation of Michelangelo’s canon (his art and its rules).

Prevailing accounts submit that Michelangelo’s pervasive, yet controversial, example was overcome during Bernini’s time, when it was rejected as an advantageous model for enterprising artists.

Based on her remarkable expert knowledge—technical, historical and aesthetic—of the physical fabric of St. Peter’s, Bernini and the Bell Tower is an awe-inspiring, laudable monument of scholarship, worthy of its subject McPhee’s book will long remain the definitive study on this topic.

The thesis of this monumental art book is that Bernini's clay models and drawings reveal an even greater genius As a scholarly study of artistic process, the book is thorough and well organized, including equal shares of history and biography, art criticism, reception studies, historiography, and curatorial practice.

As one Bernini scholar has summarized, "Perhaps the most important result of all of the [Bernini] studies and research of these past few decades has been to restore to Bernini his status as the great, principal protagonist of Baroque art, the one who was able to create undisputed masterpieces, to interpret in an original and genial fashion the new spiritual sensibilities of the age, to give the city of Rome an entirely .Art historian Emma Barker writes that Bernini's "twisting figures and deeply carved draperies defy the limits of niches or pedestals and cannot be bound or framed by a single view." Instead the viewer is encouraged to walk around the sculpture, taking it in from multiple angles to fully appreciate every detail.Start studying ART HISTORY.
