"Bernini's David If Unfinished By Michelangelo"
The sports star this was done for will remain anonymous.
I don't want work based on who has commissioned me.
Twelve decades passed between Michelangelo’s unveiling of his David and Bernini’s work on the same subject. The first was recognized at once for being a formal masterwork for the ages. Bernini, however, revolutionized sculpture with a warrior David with so much movement, energy, and pure aggression, that he moved art out of the Renaissance and into the Baroque.
This effort to approach Bernini’s David through the apparent technique of Michelangelo is my personal challenge to link together the two works most influential to me. KCB
