“Shaping the Human Body: Florentine Sculpture of the Italian Renaissance” highlights ten Italian sculptures that exemplify stylistic developments in the visual arts from the 14th to the 16th century. These masterpieces are drawn from two private collections, documenting the important and fully realised stylistic features of Gothic art and architecture in Lombardia — where the Cathedral of Milan stands as a celebrated monument of the time period and style — and tracing the beginnings and highly significant development of the Renaissance style in Tuscany.
