Millions of eyes have gazed upon (and shed tears at) the spectacular sights of Michelangelo’s David at the Galleria dell’ Accademia di Firenze and Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne at the Borghese Gallery and Museum in Rome, but few have managed to capture their magnitude on film. Italian photographer Aurelio Amendola is the exception. The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach will showcase Amendola’s work in “An Eye on Michelangelo and Bernini: Photographs by Aurelio Amendola,” on view from November 13 to January 30.
The exhibition features 30 of Amendola’s dramatic black- and-white shots of Michelangelo’s and Bernini’s works. Each photograph maintains the majesty of these towering exemplars of Renaissance creation, even from more than 5,000 miles away. From full-scale depictions to abstract cropped shots that offer a new perspective on the marble masterpieces, the exhibition is nothing short of breathtaking. Admission is $10.
