Monumental Sculpture from Renaissance Florence: Ghiberti, Nanni di Banco, and Verrocchio at Orsanmichele
UNITED STATES
WASHINGTON, D.C.  •  National Gallery  •  Ongoing
 
Three monumental masterpieces of Italian Renaissance sculpture by Lorenzo Ghiberti (1378-1455), Nanni di Banco (c. 1380/1385-1421), and Andrea del Verrocchio (1435-1488) will travel to the National Gallery of Art marking the completion of their restoration. It is the first time that major works by Ghiberti and Nanni di Banco have traveled to the United States. The works on view, Ghiberti's St. Matthew (1419-1421), Nanni di Banco's Quattro Santi Coronati (Four Martyred Saints) (c.1409-1416), and Verrocchio's Christ and St. Thomas (1466-1483), were originally created for the exterior of Orsanmichele in Florence, and they represent the highest achievement of 15th-century Florentine sculpture.
