Catalogue Note

Gianlorenzo Bernini's Apollo and Daphne of 1622-25 introduced an entirely new sculptural aesthetic and is widely admired as one of the great masterpieces that ushered in the Baroque period in sculpture. He depicts the moment that Daphne turns into a tree in a clever play on the sculptural medium.
