CDR-1162: SR Set: Gian Lorenzo Bernini: Fusion of the Arts in Monumental Works

In this second set of work by Gian Lorenzo Bernini Scholars Resource offers examples that illustrate his ground-breaking move to an innovative unification of architecture, sculpture and painting in his monumental work. Some works in our Bernini sculpture set, such as the Ecstasy of St. Theresa, reappear here more fully as examples of the unification the arts as well as for their dramatic use of light, use of polychrome marble, and theatrical design. We also include the combined architectural structure and monumental sculpture of Bernini's incomparable Baldacchino, as well as monumental tombs in St Peter's, dynamic sculptural fountains, and other works of architecture, culminating in the grand embrace of the colonnade of the Piazza of St Peter's.
