Bernini in Action: Gesture and Technique in Clay

Antho­ny Sigel, Gue­st Cura­tor, and Con­ser­va­tor of Objec­ts and Sculp­tu­re, Straus Cen­ter for Con­ser­va­tion and Tech­ni­cal Stu­dies, Har­vard Art Museums outli­nes the research and disco­ve­ries made by him­self and his fel­low cura­tors as part of the pre­pa­ra­tion for the exhi­bi­tion “Ber­ni­ni: Sculp­ting in Clay.” By resear­ching how Ber­ni­ni sculp­ted his models, Sigel deter­mi­nes which figu­res Ber­ni­ni crea­ted him­self and which ones were like­ly crea­ted by assi­stan­ts. His lec­tu­re inclu­des his own pho­to­gra­phs of the models and detai­led descrip­tions of Bernini’s methods.

The exhi­bi­tion Ber­ni­ni: Sculp­ting in Clay is on view from Octo­ber 3, 2012–January 6, 2013 at the Metro­po­li­tan Museum of Art.

The exhi­bi­tion and cata­lo­gue are made pos­si­ble by the Iris & B. Gerald Can­tor Foun­da­tion.

The exhi­bi­tion was orga­ni­zed by The Metro­po­li­tan Museum of Art, New York, and the Kim­bell Art Museum, Fort Worth.
