Gian Lorenzo Bernini, one of the finest sculptors and artists of the 17th century designed, created and constructed nearly all of them. His skills as a fountain developer and also as a city architect, are visible all through the roads of Rome. Bernini's father, a celebrated Florentine sculptor, guided his young son, and they ultimately moved in Rome, to fully show their art in the form of community water features and water features. The juvenile Bernini was an exemplary worker and earned encouragement and patronage of important painters as well as popes. At the start he was recognized for his sculptural skills. An expert in ancient Greek engineering, he used this knowledge as a foundation and melded it gracefully with Roman marble, most notably in the Vatican. Though he was influenced by many, Michelangelo had the most profound impact on him, both personally and professionally.

The Major Characteristics of Classic Greek Sculpture

The Major Characteristics of Classic Greek Sculpture Archaic Greeks were known for providing the first freestanding statuary; up till then, most carvings were formed out of walls and pillars as reliefs. Kouros figures, sculptures of young, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks, made up the greater part of the statues. Representing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were designed to look stiff and always had foot forward; the males were healthy, strong, and nude. Around 650 BC, life-size models of the kouroi began to be observed. Throughout the Archaic time, a big time of change, the Greeks were developing new types of government, expressions of art, and a larger understanding of people and cultures outside Greece. Nonetheless, the Greek civilization was not slowed down by these battles.
