By Arne Karsten

Gianlorenzo Bernini erwarb seinen Ruhm vor allem als der große Baumeister und Bildhauer des römischen Barock: als Architekt von Petersdom und Petersplatz und als Schöpfer einzigartig bewegter, dramatischer Skulpturen. In seinem langen Leben diente er nicht weniger als acht Päpsten und beeindruckte die Zeitgenossen als Universalgenie.
Arne Karsten leuchtet in seiner glänzend geschriebenen Biographie neben dem vielfältigen Werk Berninis auch das soziale und politische Umfeld aus, in dem der Künstler agierte und seine Erfolge feierte. Zugleich erzählt er von den Intrigen, den Exzessen und Wutausbrüchen des Künstlers, der mit seinen hochgestellten Auftraggebern zwar meisterhaft umzugehen wusste, aber alles andere als ein farbloser Karrierist war.
