The brilliantly expressive clay models created by Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) as sketches for his works in marble offer insights into his creative imagination. This title includes essays that describe Bernini's education as a modeler; his approach to preparatory drawings; and the response to his models by 17th-century collectors.
