This weekend, Akiko and I saw am amazing exhibit at the Getty featuring Bernini and other Baroque portrait sculptures.
Just unbelievable how much life there is in these marble sculptures from the 17th century. Also incredible were the textures, cloth, hair, beard stubble and even fur collars.
The show also had several portrait drawings and painting.

A real treat to able to stand up close and study all these groundbreaking works of art.
