Pair of Lovers - Bustelli

We just learned about the Fuga d'Attila Relief by Alessandro Algardi.

We've seen a lot of different Baroque sculptures!

Another sculpture style is called Rococo.
This style of sculpture was very decorated, with lots of curves, white and pastel colors, and gilding with metals like gold.

One of the most famous sculptors in the Rococo style was Franz Anton Bustelli, and one of his most famous sculptures was the Pair of Lovers, showing two people in love, surrounded by curved shapes, painted with bright colors, and gilded with gold trim.
