Dear Borromini, you got me

Dome of San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane
Francesco Borromini (1634-67)

His innovative use of overlapping ovals conveys a sense of movement through their long axes. ‘One looks at Bernini’s buildings with the eyes; one feels Borromini’s with the whole body.’ - Anthony Blunt
