    Il Ratto di Proserpina, gruppo scultoreo di Gian Lorenzo Bernini, raffigura Plutone, re degli Inferi che rapisce Proserpina, figlia di Cerere. Fu eseguito tra il 1621 e il 1622, e attualmente si trova nella Galleria Borghese a Roma. Lo scultore sviluppa il tema della torsione elicoidale dei corpi, memore della tradizione manieristica, contrapponendo tuttavia l'impeto delle figure.
