Review: BerniniUser Review - Goodreads
I think Bernini was a genius. Having recently visited Italy, specifically Rome and Florence I was able to see his work first hand. Truly an experience to see marble transformed into delicate pieces of artwork. I loved learning more about Bernini through this book, a great reference to his work. Read full review
