Las ánimas de Bernini

If there ever was a sculptor who was detailed in his work and able to represent grandeur and delicacy at once in each of his creations, it had to be Bernini. The Prado Museum is home to the first exhibition in Madrid that is dedicated and pays tribute to this amazing sculptor, architect and painter. The museum brings the sculptures 'Anima Beata' and 'Anima Dannata' to town for the occasion. Both were commissioned to Gian Lorenzo Bernini (Naples, 1598 – Rome, 1680) by Pedro Foix de Montoya. Today they are in the Palace of Spain, seat of the Embassy of Spain in the Vatican, and are on loan for the exhibition.
