COMPARE AND CONTRAST Bernini’s David (1623; marble; 5 ft. 7 in.; Fiero, fig. 20.12) with Michelangelo’s David (1501-04; marble; 13 ft. 5 in.; to be found on Google-Images). Recount the biblical story depicted, and make sure that you explain the specific moment that each artist illustrates in his sculpture. YOU NEED TO LOOK AT ALL SIDES OF EACH SCULPTURE, which you can easily do with the help of Google-Images. There are views from the sides as well as from the back of both sculptures.
While you are comparing and contrasting the two sculptures you are also comparing and contrasting two different artistic periods, namely Southern Renaissance and Baroque. REFERRING TO THE SCULPTURES, explain the stylistic differences.
Your response needs to consist of a minimum of 3 paragraphs, each paragraph consisting of at least 50 words in NON-REPETITIVE sentences (total of a minimum of 150 words).
