This conference aims to complement the exhibition Donatello: Sculpting the Renaissance at the V&A with impactful and innovative research on the sculptor Donatello (c. 1386-1466). The conference is organised by the V&A Research Institute and will provide an opportunity to discuss the importance of training, collaboration and workshops around Donatello and his close associates, together with Donatello’s rediscovery in the 19th century.

Tickets for the conference will go on sale in March 2023.
This event will take place in person in the Hochhauser Auditorium and online via Zoom.

This conference is supported by the Robert H. Smith Family Foundation and a grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
