Baroque sculpture in Rome
(S. Sebastiano by Giuseppe Giorgetti
)

This is a directory of links to the pages where Baroque sculptures are shown. The list is split in three sections in line with Rudolf Wittkower's Art and Architecture in Italy 1600-1750. You can see a similar directory covering Baroque Architecture.

Period of transition (approximately from 1600 to 1625)
Baroque Age (approximately from 1625 to 1675)
Late Baroque and Rococo (approximately from 1675 to 1775)

S. Longino by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in St Peter's and Antinoo (Hermes) del Belvedere, the classical statue regarded as a model by Bernini

The distinctive features of baroque statues are a) the use of more than one block of marble, thus allowing a large array of gestures; b) the treatment of drapery, which does not fall in an ordinary way, but is moved by a sort of wind; c) the use of variegated/colored marble or of different marbles; d) a torsion of a very often tall and slim body.

The first column shows the name of the sculptor and his dates of birth and death. The second column has the link to the page where the statue is shown. Sculptors are sorted by year of birth.
