David

1623

Why is it canonical?

In addition to being a successful and widely sought after architect, Bernini was an accomplished sculptor. His David is true Baroque aesthetics: active, lively, and rather than contemplative like Davids from Michelangelo or Donatello, it asks the viewer to see David at a single, dramatic moment of action.
