Title research: From Antiquity to Papacy: a Culmination of Cultures and Ages Seen Retrospectively Through the Interdisciplinary Conception of Bernini’s 'Apollo and Daphne' (1622-1625).
About this project: The crux of public display and in situ agency of both pagan and Catholic subjects in early modern art is, in my opinion, the true dichotomy of the Renaissance, and by extension the Baroque. To understand this reoccurring transformation of artistic expression that is enforced by the Catholic Church, I want to study the transformation of Ovid’s ‘Apollo and Daphne’ as a figurative group that directly affected Rome’s seventeenth-century society.
