Exhibition The Springtime of the Renaissance
Sculpture and the Arts in Florence, 1400-1460

from September 26, 2013 to January 6, 2014



Exhibition organized by Musée du Louvre and the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, withthe exceptional participation of the Museo Nazionale del Bargello.
Held in Florence from March 23 to August 18, 2013.
ENI is proud to be the main sponsor of this exhibition. Additional support is provided by DELOITTE.

The Springtime of the Renaissance deals with the genesis of this major artistic and cultural movement, which first arose in Florence in the early years of the 15th century.

Sculpture, an essential aspect of this rebirth, is the central focus of this exhibition. Some 140 works are presented, including several monumental ones, grouped into ten thematic sections. In addition to sculptures, the exhibition also features paintings, drawings, manuscripts, silver and gold pieces and tin-glazed earthenware.

Sculptures by Donatello serve as one of the threads running through the exhibition, which presents several of the greatest masterpieces by this artist, considered by many as the most creative exponent of the Renaissance. However his works do not in any way eclipse the virtuosity of contributions by other illustrious sculptors, including Ghiberti, Michelozzo, Desiderio da Settignano and Mino da Fiesole.


Organized by:

Marc Bormand, curator at the Department of Sculptures, Musée du Louvre, and Beatrice Paolozzi Strozzi, director of the Museo Nazionale del Bargello

  • I'm looking for more information on the Madonna and child in painted terracotta by Donatello..I saw this in Florence, but would like access to side photographs or rear ones if they exist? Also how did it come to the Louvre?
