From the Paper:

"Once again, it is hard to think about the word "Baroque" and not think of Bernini. He is undoubtedly one of the best artists of his time and his art has done much to influence and inspire many other artists and architects. What is most interesting, however, about Bernini is what inspired and influenced his own art. Bernini was born right at the beginning of a new era that was dominated by brilliant artists. Even at an early age he showed a taste for art."
