Bernini: Sculpting in Clay

Lessons from an Exhibition


C.D. Dickerson III

Curator of European Art

Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth

Saturday, February 9; 2 p.m.


Lecture held in the Marvin & Betty Danto Lecture Hall


The expressive clay models that Bernini created as “sketches” offer extraordinary insights into the sculptor’s creative imagination. C.D. Dickerson will discuss these models, the subject of an exhibition he is curating at the Kimbell and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and some of the lessons learned.
