Event Details

Two polychrome wood sculptures highlight elements of the exhibition "Shaping the Human Body: Florentine Sculpture of the Italian Renaissance". This demonstration will focus on Donatello’s sculpture A Young Girl. The workshop's instructor will teach the basic techniques of wood sculpture as well as discuss Donatello’s innovative use of materials. Throughout the session, the instructor will analyse and explain how and why the scientific study of the human body can be related to the rebirth of classical antiquity, the long period of Roman-Greco civilisation.

《塑造體態:意大利文藝復興的佛羅倫斯雕塑》展覽的其中兩件作品爲彩色木雕雕塑。是次活動將集中示範多納泰羅的「年輕的女孩」雕塑。導師將講述木雕雕塑的基本技巧以及多納泰羅對物料的創新運用。示範期間,導師將會分析及解說人體的科學研究爲何與古典時代(即希臘羅馬世界的長期文化史)的重生有關。
