HAD-636 Bernini and the Baroque

3 Credits

Gianlorenzo Bernini's (1598-1680) dynamic, innovative sculpture, monumental tombs and breathtaking architecture, will be the focus of this seminar. His work for the papacy and for private patrons formed the essence of the Roman Baroque. Competition in Rome with Borromini in architecture and Algardi in sculpture, among others and across Europe, will also be explored.
