Bernini (Naples 7 December 1598 — Rome 28 November 1680) was the a leading figure in the Roman Baroque architecture. During his long career, Bernini received many important commissions, mostly from the Popes and at the age of twenty three was knighted by Pope Gregory XV. Although he did not fare so well during the reign of Innocent X, under Alexander VII, he once again regained pre-eminent artistic domination and continued to be held in high regard by Clement IX. In love with classical sculpture, Bernini possessed the unique ability to capture, in marble, the essence of the narrative moment with a dramatic naturalistic realism which was almost shocking and this ensured that he effectively became the successor of Michelangelo.
