The Rape of Proserpina - Bernini

Theresa Spath

I found this sculpture by Bernini to be one of his greatest. He paid so much attention to detail and it is amazing that it is made from marble. It also fascinates me that he was only 23 years old when he created this. It was probably a very scandalous piece of work when it was made, which I think makes it even more brilliant.
