DESCRIPTION

 Bernini's portrait bust of his mistress Costanza Bonarelli is often cited as a pivotal sculptural work. Until recently, little was known about the sitter's identity. Sarah McPhee, professor of art history at Emory University, shares some surprising discoveries about Bonarelli based on new archival research, unearthing a fuller identity for the artist's mistress.
