Paul Werner's Tours of Bernini: Sculpting in Clay at the Met, Dec. 12 and 13

New York Arts Exchange faculty member Dr. Paul Werner says:
"You might get the wrong idea from the dab of clay on the bridge of the nose of Saint Jerome; that is, on the original clay model built by Bernini for his figure of Jerome as it now stands at the back of Saint Peter's, in Rome. The dab of clay may appear gratuitous, or spontaneous, or private: it's the posture of being all three..."

"Bernini. Sculpting in Clay." at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Dr. Werner's Review:

Reserve a place with The Orange Press:
Private Tours of the Exhibition: Thursday, December 13, 10:00 am & Saturday, December 15, 11:00 am.

Bernini: Sculpting in Clay continues through January 6, 2013.
