C.D. Dickerson and “Bernini: Sculpting in Clay”

I went to a talk tonight given by C.D. Dickerson, curator of European Art at the Kimbell Museum in Fort Worth, TX, discussing their current exhibit of Bernini‘s clay models. The talk was fascinating, discussing both Bernini’s love of the medium, as well as the importance of the physical imprint Bernini left on these models. For example, the fingerprints and nail marks that Bernini left in the clay.

As someone who has been to Kimbell, I was very excited for this talk. It is a wonderful museum, not what you expect in the middle of Fort Worth. It is nice to see the museum entrusted in the hands of people who obviously care a great deal about it and take the role of a museum like the Kimbell seriously.

The video above is Mr. Dickerson discussing Bernini’s “Model for the Fountain of the Moor“. This sculpture is owned by the Kimbell and is an impressive example of Bernini’s studies for his sculpted works.
