Bernini and Baroque Rome
The portraits, fountains and mythological sculptures of GianLorenzo Bernini are some of the most exuberant and joyous sculptures ever made.

This complex, driven artist was the friend and confidant of Popes and princes, a child prodigy and a prolific, if understandably arrogant, genius. Find out about his sculpture, paintings, fountains, architecture – even plays – but also discover why such exuberance and magnificence became powerful weapons in a religious and political propaganda war.
