Overview

This program presents the story of the Italian sculptor Donatello, whose 15th century works revolutionized the art of sculpture. Donatello was the first sculptor to produce a nude, with his David, which stood in his native Florence. He was also the first sculptor to work in bronze. The program presents many of the artist's greatest works, including statues he did of saints, such as Magdalene and Peter. Art historians and modern sculptors discuss Donatello's importance and his influence on modern sculpture. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter
