WEEK - BERNINI'S VOYEURISM - 0257

Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Pluto and Proserpina, 1621

For Bernini and the Baroque, mysticism was not just an inward and hidden experience, but one that involved a direct intuition of the divine, one so clear and palpable that it could be described with vivid language and concrete, visual forms.” (Vernon Hyde Minor)
