Bernini ...


I just feel absolutely worthless and lazy each time I read about Bernini.  Often referred to as the successor of Michelangelo, Bernini produced great works of art, architecture, and sculpture - one of his greatest by the age of 23.  I am reminded with Bernini what is truly important as an artist, time dedicated to excellence.  I doubt seriously if I were his student he'd put up with even one minute of blogging or social media, for certain.  Gian Lorenzo Bernini, 1598-1690, was a an artist, sculptor, architect, writer and metal worker far surpassing his contemporaries.  Vast amount of information may be found  HERE and I urge everyone if you have at least five minutes to peruse that page; there are links to roughly sixty works in marble, as well as paintings and architecture.  What a gifted individual from his youth through old age, reminding all of us what can be accomplished when dedicated to it.
