Wow, I’m not normally much for art museum collections. Normally I prefer the buildings to the collections but the Borghese Gallery in Rome has three unbelievable sculptures by Bernini that are very impressive. To me this is the height of sculpture where craft has been perfected and now the intent is theater. Below is a video of my favorite, Apollo and Daphne. Of course video doesn’t do it justice so get yourself to Rome to see it.
Also check out the trompe l’oeil on the ceiling.
