Gian Lorenzo Bernini - The Abduction of Proserpina - He made marble look like flesh

The Abduction of Proserpina was executed between 1621 and 1622 when Bernini’s career was in its early stages. He was only 23 years old at its completion.



Every nuance of the hands, her hair, fingers pressing flesh, a command of the language of the human form.
