The Italian Renaissance is known to have been a golden age for the arts. This volume, which spans the years 1400-1490, examines early Italian Renaissance sculpture. While the author's central focus is on the work of Donatello, the author also illustrates the beginnings of Renaissance sculpture in Florence, its further development in Tuscany and the rest of Italy, the new artistic goals, and the relationships between patron and artist, convention and artistic freedom. Other sculptors included in the book are Ghiberti, Jacopo della Quercia, Nanni de Banco, Luca della Robbia, Francesco Laurana and Verrocchio.
