The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, presents Donatello to Giambologna: Italian Renaissance Sculpture through June 10, 2007. This exhibition is a fascinating collection of nearly 100 renaissance sculptures, many of which have never been on view to the public. Renowned renaissance sculptors such as Donatello, Giovanni Adel Maino, Giambologna and the masterful Giovanni FrancescRustici––a Florentine sculptor who was a student of Leonardo dVinci––are represented in this exhibition. With the wide range of artists and media, Donatello to Giambologna offers an expansive look at both the traditional and lesser-known forms of Renaissance sculpture. The exhibition also reveals the fascinating process of conservation, as works will be shown in various stages of restoration. Donatello to Giambologna will allow visitors to gain insight into how renaissance sculptures were created during this important period in art history.
