"Shaping the Human Body: Florentine Sculpture of the Italian Renaissance" Exhibition

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) presents "Shaping the Human Body: Florentine Sculpture of the Italian Renaissance" from May 18 to August 12, 2018. The exhibition 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. The individual pieces include works by Florentine master sculptors such as Pacio Bertini, Francesco di Valdambrino, Donatello and members of the Della Robbia family.

The sculptures beautifully illustrate both how the artistic representation of the human body transformed during this time period and how the scientific study of the body and the ambition to depict more life-like portraits influenced the arts. This development coincided with the establishment of academic institutions and the formalisation of scientific and artistic training.

The objects in this exhibition further display the breadth of artistic materials, including stone, wood and ceramic, each employed and mastered during this vital era in the creation of religious and secular iconography.

《塑造體態:意大利文藝復興的佛羅倫斯雕塑》展覽

香港大學(港大)美術博物館將於二零一八年五月十八日至八月十二日呈獻《塑造體態:意大利文藝復興的佛羅倫斯雕塑》展覽。展覽展示十件意大利雕塑,呈現出十四至十六世紀視覺藝術風格的發展。這些來自兩個私人收藏的傑作,記錄了倫巴底大區重要而精妙絕倫的歌德式藝術與建築風格特色──當地的米蘭大教堂更是充分展現出這段時期與風格的著名地標,並追溯了於托斯卡尼起源和高度發展的文藝復興風格。其中的展品包括由佛羅倫斯雕塑大師,如柏喬‧貝爾提尼、弗朗西斯科‧瓦爾當布里諾、多納泰羅、及德拉‧羅比亞家族成員等塑造的作品。

這批雕塑完美地體現人體的藝術再現在此時期的轉變、並藝術如何受到人體的科學研究、並對繪畫出更多栩栩如生的肖像畫之渴望所影響。此藝術發展的步伐恰好與學術機構的成立、和科學與藝術訓練的正規化同時進行。

展覽的展品進一步展現出在這個創造宗教與世俗圖像的輝煌時代,所採用且發揮得淋漓盡致的藝術材料,如石材、木材及陶瓷。
