As we all know Renaissance period was a fresh fountain of art in many forms. This era has produced classic artists who are appreciated and studied even in the modern-day. Within that time, the Baroque Period was a time where its art had exaggerated theatrics in its presentation.
It is visible in the work of an amazing Italian sculpturing artist Giuliano Finelli who was an apprentice of the famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Finelli was born in a less popular region in Italy, he later moved to Rome in 1622. He was his master’s assistance, where he got a lot of exposure from the high-end work his master did.

One of the most interesting pieces of Finelli is the sculpture of Maria Duglioli Barberini. She was the niece of Pope Urban VIII who has passed away. The attention to detail is incredible as he mimicked the facial features and the material that she was wearing, especially the lace materials.
It was an amazing piece of work that was done all by hand, obviously, they didn’t have machinery or tools that would take the artist’s work off of him. But, sadly, Bernini had not shared his fame with Finelli even though he was a very good artist.
Finally, Finelli decided to leave his master and start his artistic journey by himself in 1629. He has been a very talented sculpturing artist all through those times. He and his master Bernini both share talents in sculpturing sensitive and very miniature detail on their sculptures.
