Davide Gasparotto, Senior Curator of Paintings and Chair, Curatorial Affairs, J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles
Bertoldo di Giovanni played a pivotal role in the revival of classical culture in Florence during the age of Lorenzo de’ Medici. This lecture examines Bertoldo’s singular contributions to the development of the bronze statuette, a genre originally intended for sophisticated and exacting collectors, but destined to become an enduring distillation of Renaissance beauty.
