Along with Donatello, Michelangelo, and Canova, Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini is one of the key artists who defined the course of sculpture in Italy. This portrait, featured in “50 for 50,” belongs to the artist’s late period. Its broad execution, particularly in the somewhat simplified treatment of the draperies, confers the bust a troubling immediacy. [Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini, Portrait of a Gentleman, c. 1670. Gift of The Ahmanson Foundation.] #Bernini #sculpture #LACMA50
