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.
