Sculpture in the Age of Donatello: Renaissance Masterpieces from Florence Cathedral

Sculpture in the Age of Donatello: Renaissance Masterpieces from Florence Cathedral

$25.00

With fresh insights and brand new photography, Sculpture in the Age of Donatello offers a close look at the genesis of the early Renaissance in Florence. Focusing on a group of works made in the first half of the fifteenth century for Florence Cathedral (the Duomo), this volume highlights the ingenuity and spirit of competition that drove this multi-faceted project.  Sculpture gave expression to new humanist ideas, and Donatello, one of the most influential and versatile sculptors of the Renaissance, was a main innovator.  This engaging account places Donatello's major early works alongside those of his contemporaries--masters such as Lorenzo Ghiberti, Nanni di Banco, and Luca della Robbia.
