Antiques And Fine Art Shows
Spring is finally here and so are some great Antique Shows. Have a look!
Exhibition: Bernini...Sculpting in Clay
Dates: Now through April 14, 2013
Location: Kimbell Art Museum, Ft. Worth, Texas
To visualize life-size and colossal sculptures in marble and bronze, the great Baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598–1680) began by rapidly modeling small sketches in clay. Fired as terracotta, these studies are bold, expressive works in their own right. Together with related drawings, they preserve the first traces of Bernini’s fervid imagination and unique creative process, which produced some of the most spectacular statuary in Rome, including the fountains in the Piazza Navona and the angels on the Ponte Sant’Angelo. This exhibition will feature for the first time approximately 40 of these terracotta sketch models, shown together with 30 drawings. Due to unprecedented loans especially granted for this occasion, the exhibition will be the first to retrace Bernini’s unparalleled approach to sculptural design and his impact on the fabric of Baroque Rome.
