Lecture 17 11/06/08 Bernini (1598-1680), “David” (1623) Unity of body and spirit Dramatic presentation of sculptures—sculptures in action, intense facial and physical expression. Bernini’s David sculpture does not include the head of Goliath, yet the idea is implied by the gaze of David. In comparison, Michelangelo’s David is self-contained . Bernini’s David seizes e a dramatic moment in which David is about to take action. As a result, Bernini’s David is more likely to be located in a larger space which allows the dramatic effect to form to the full extent. (Whereas it doesn’t really matter where Michelangelo’s David is placed because it does not require as much dramatic effect.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
