Art History Paper David Sculpture

535 words - 3 pages depiction of David the best.

Berini’s depiction is one of few to depict David in action fighting Goliath. This action shot is typical of Baroque art as can be seen in paintings like those of Caravaggio. But the detail and beauty he was able to portray in marble to me is something that should be highly commended as an artist and as his piece of art. I also see much more symbolism in the Berini David. There is a lot more biblical references in the Berini version which I like because the original story comes from the bible.
