Paul Getty Museum and from November 28, 2008, through March 8, 2009, at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa--showcases portrait sculptures from all phases of the artists long career, from the very early Antonio Coppola of 1612 to Clement X of about 1676, one of his last completed works.Berninis portrait busts were masterpieces of technical virtuosity- at the same time, they revealed a new interest in psychological depth.

Berninis ability to capture the essential character of his subjects was unmatched and had a profound influence on other leading sculptors of his day, such as Alessandro Algardi, Giuliano Finelli, and Francesco Mochi.Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture is a groundbreaking study that features drawings and paintings by Bernini and his contemporaries.
