Study Up For 'Think': Bernini Up Close

Feb 20, 2013

Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s awe-inspiring sculptures like David mark the streets of Rome. But you can see models of his subjects at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth. They're a glimpse into the world of Bernini's early imaginings that Sarah McPhee, author of Bernini's Beloved: A Portrait of Costanza Piccolomini, has studied.

She talks to Think host Krys Boyd at 1 p.m.

Trace Bernini's hand through his early imaginings in the exhibit Bernini: Sculpting In Clay in this piece by Art&Seek's Stephen Becker. And Jerome Weeks' review compares Bernini's figures to those of comic book artist Jack Kirby and other works.
