This volume brings together new research by some of the world’s leading experts, exploring the artistic production and cultural context of Renaissance sculpture from Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise to the small bronzes of Giambologna and his followers. The essays cover a range of sculptural materials and forms to cast fresh light on the artists, their creative and collaborative processes, and those who commissioned, owned and responded to their work. The papers were originally presented at a two-day conference at the V&A in November 2010 as part of the Robert H. Smith Renaissance Sculpture Programme.
