Brief Descriptions

The exhibition is divided into different parts, the first (Section I: The Legacy of the Fathers) exploring the rediscovery of ancient art in the 13th and 14th centuries by the likes of Nicola Pisano, Arnolfo and their successors. It then looks into the assimilation of Gothic style of French origin, including Brunelleschi's renowned sculpture, which is the starting point for the Early Renaissance. The exhibition follows development and influences from monumental sculptures by the likes of Donatello, Ghiberti, Nanni di Banco and Michelozzo, painting by artists such as Masaccio, Paolo Uccello, Andrea del Castagno and Filippo Lippi, and the impact on the political and spiritual mood of the city. Other elements include the development of perspective in bas-relief work, a taste for 'new beauty' and new commissions in places of worship, and the transition to the private patronage of the powerful Medici family. Exhibition: Palazzo Strozzi, Florence, Italy (3.-8.2013) / Musâee du Louvre, Paris, France (9.2013-1.2014) -- - (Baker & Taylor)

The exhibition proposes to illustrate, in theme-based Sections, the origin of what is still known today as the 'miracle' of the Renaissance in Florence. - (NBN)
