"Donatello: Sculpting the Renaissance" by Peta Motture

With essays by my former professor and director of the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo. Mons. Timothy Verdon, and my good friend and celebrated art historian, John Paoletti, this book explores Donatello’s extraordinary creativity within the vibrant artistic and cultural context of 15th-century Italy.  It also surveys his early connection with goldsmiths’ work and the collaborative nature of his workshop and processes. And finally, it reflects on Donatello’s legacy, reviewing how his sculpture inspired subsequent generations in the later Renaissance and beyond. Buona lettura!
