Body and soul. From Donatello to Michelangelo. Italian Renaissance sculptures

The Louvre hosts an exhibition “Body and soul. From Donatello to Michelangelo. Sculptures of the Italian Renaissance ".

The exhibition of more than 140 works, organized in conjunction with the Castello Sforzesco Museum in Milan, highlights the main lines of force that spread throughout Italy in the second half of Quattrocento, culminating in the early 16th century, during the heyday of Renaissance sculpture.
Thus, the depiction of the human figure in the variety of its movements takes on extremely innovative forms. This exploration of expression and feeling is at the heart of the work of some of the greatest sculptors of the time, from Donatello to one of the most famous creators in history, Michelangelo.

The exhibition also allows you to get to know the work of lesser-known artists, admire works that are difficult to access due to their place of preservation (churches, towns, exhibition situation in museums), in order to see them again in perspective, but also in context.

Based on site materials Louvre Museum, Paris.
