A couple weekends back I went with some friends to check out the Bernini exhibit at the Getty.
I was blown away. His work is so bold and full of life and energy, yet extremely subtle and fine, especially the marble pieces. The way he sculpted skin stretching on the ears, facial creases, hair patterns etc. was incredibly inspiring. I sketched a few of the sculptures to better appreciate their finer points. I would highly recommend the exhibit; if you live in the L.A. area and have any appreciation for sculpture it’s not to be missed.
