All anyone ever talks about is Michelangelo’s David, and with good reason. I prefer Bernini’s David.
What a coincidence. Just moments ago I mentioned Bernini in the comments on my blog. Of course, I was making a joke about Mirka’s hair… but still 😉 He is one of the kings of drapery, after all. The two David’s are so different aren’t they? Bernini’s is hard and determined while Michelangelo’s is so vulnerable. Add Donatello’s to the mix and things get a little wild!
Lol, I just saw pictures of both of those statues for the first time. Yeah, what I love about Bernini is the drama in the statue. In Michaelangelo’s David, the form of David’s body is perfectly formed (obviously ;)) but it’s difficult to say what exactly is happening in that statue. This one is an active, dramatic pose, and his face is so full of concentration and determination.
By both of those statues I mean Donatello’s David and Bernini’s David.
