Bertoldo di Giovanni: The Renaissance of Sculpture in Medici Florence

Browse Sample Pages

This major scholarly catalogue is the most substantial text on Bertoldo di Giovanni (ca. 1440–1491) ever produced. Contributions from renowned international scholars bring into focus the sculptor’s unique position at the heart of the artistic and political landscape of Medici Florence. Bertoldo’s working method is especially considered, tracing his artworks from concept to design to production, across media, and, often, involving collaboration with other well-known artists. The statues, reliefs, medals, statuettes, and frieze attributed to Bertoldo demonstrate the artist’s ingenuity, as well as his essential role in the development of Italian sculpture between the Early and High Renaissance.
