Bio/Research

Carolina Mangone specializes in southern Renaissance and Baroque art. She is currently completing a book manuscript that examines how Gianlorenzo Bernini, the “Michelangelo of his age,” perpetuated his predecessor’s achievement in an epoch as deeply ambivalent about Michelangelo’s artistic exemplarity as it was wholly obsessed with his prestige and celebrity.
