Bernini Sketch

Study of “David” by Bernini

If you don’t know who Gian Lorenzo Bernini is, you are probably not alone. However, you really should Google the man. He was an amazing artist from the early 17th century who created the most riveting marble sculptures. The sense of realism, emotion, and narration in his work is truly a joy to behold.

This is a quick study of his sculpture David. You know, the shepherd who killed the giant Goliath with a sling shot. In Bernini’s version, David does not seem too vulnerable – aside from the nudity of course.
