Sant'Agnese in Agone

< previous > < index > < next >
On the lower level (up to the cornice), the decoration is limited to carving, reflecting Borromini's preference for pure architecture accented only by sculpture; on the upper level (above the cornice), painting and gilding predominate, reflecting Bernini's propensity to combine all the arts into one grand, comprehensive scheme. There is a large lunette window above the main altar.
