At the tender age of 17, Donatello was on his way to becoming one of the most influential sculptors of the Italian Renaissance. He breathed new life into stone and bronze figures with energetic, spiraling poses, and developed a new style of flat relief sculpture. Under the protection and patronage of the Medici family, Donatello enjoyed total artistic freedom and eagerly pursued inspiration from classical and medieval sources. Presented by Lorna Cahall.
