An Eye on Michelangelo and Bernini: Photographs by Aurelio Amendola
The Society of the Four Arts
This special exhibition developed by the Fine Arts Department features 30 stunning black and white photographs by Aurelio Amendola, a prolific contemporary photographer from Italy.
This exhibition features photographic details of some of Michelangelo’s most beloved pieces — David, Pietà, Moses, Victory, and figures from the Tombs of Giuliano di Lorenzo de’ Medici and Lorenzo di Piero de’ Medici — alongside details of Bernini’s Damned Soul, David, Apollo and Daphne, Rape of Persephone, and Aeneas, Anchises, and Ascanius.
A consummate experimenter, Amendola’s photography practice blends tradition and modernity with great intensity, grace, and melody. Printed in large format on aluminum, the photographs in An Eye on Michelangelo and Bernini show the intimate dialogue Amendola shares with the artists and unveil the style and intensity of the Italian masters from the personal point of view of the photographer.
