Sculpture in the Age of Donatello: Renaissance Masterpieces from Florence Cathedral opens 20 February 2015 at the Museum of Biblical Art, New York. Twenty-three early Florentine Renaissance sculptures—most never seen outside Italy—will be exhibited as the centerpiece of the Museum’s tenth anniversary season. MOBIA will be the sole venue for this exhibition of works created as components of larger programs for the exterior and interior of Florence Cathedral (the Duomo) from around 1400 until 1450. Sculpture in the Age of Donatello brings together objects made for the same location by artists who knew and competed with each other. On view through 14 June 2015.
