Summary

A lavish survey of Renaissance master sculptor Donatello and his works—captured in photographs from some of the nation’s most renowned art museums

Arguably the greatest sculptor of all time, Donatello (c. 1386–1466) was at the vanguard of a revolution in sculptural practice in the early Renaissance. Combining ideas from classical and medieval sculpture to create innovative sculptural forms, Donatello had an unparalleled ability to portray emotions in works intended to inspire spiritual devotion. Pieces such as the penitent St. Mary Magdalene and the bronze of David remain deeply affecting to audiences today. Working in marble, bronze, wood, terracotta, and stucco, he contributed to major commissions of church and state, was an intimate of the Medici family and their circle in Florence, and was highly sought after in other Italian cities.

Featuring essays from art historians, editor Peta Motture’s Donatello: Sculpting the Renaissance explores the artist’s extraordinary creativity within the vibrant artistic and cultural context of 15th-century Italy, surveying his early connection with goldsmiths’ work and the collaborative nature of his workshop and processes. It also reflects on Donatello’s legacy, reviewing how his sculpture inspired subsequent generations in the later Renaissance and beyond.
