NOTES This stunning depiction of St. Sebastian from the St. Sebastian Basilic on the outskirts of Rome is a testament to the long and prestigious career of Gianlorenzo Bernini whose work echoes with the essence of human passion. This later work was possibly based on a design by Bernini by Antonio Giorgetti, one of his assistants.
