Abstract

This article offers new information about the historical circumstances surrounding the creation of Bernini's memorials to Ippolito Merenda and Alessandro Valtrini. It also considers other memorials dedicated to Valtrini by institutions designated as his heirs. Motifs that will dominate Bernini's later works appear for the first time in these two relatively small monuments designed by him. New dates are suggested for both, on the basis of style and iconography. The concepts of Death, Fame, and Time, and images of them among works by Bernini and other artists, are discussed in relation to the iconography of the memorials.
