This fall there are major exhibitions dedicated to the Renaissance masters, especially the Italians.

The Renaissance was an important artistic and cultural movement that arose for the first time in Florence in the early 15th century. Sculpture was an essential aspect of this movement and is the central focus of the exhibition taking place at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

About 140 works are presented, including several more monuments, grouped into ten thematic sections. In addition to sculptures, the exhibition also has paintings, drawings or manuscripts, as well as silver objects, gold coins.

Donatello It is the main exponent of the show, presenting several masterpieces by the artist considered by many to be the most creative of the early Renaissance.

In addition to works by illustrious sculptors, creative geniuses such as Ghiberti, Nanni de Banco, Luca della Robbia, Nanni de Bartolo, Michelozzo, Agostino di Duccio, Desiderio da Settignano and Mino da Fiesole. In this way it is shown that the first half of the 15th century was exceptionally rich in artists of the highest caliber.

The ten sections of the exhibition they form a whole putting emphasis on themes and styles in some cases, and in others in the social and cultural context that serves as a framework to unite the exhibited works. The influence of the Greco-Roman is a constant presence throughout all sections, showing the importance that works of antiquity had a key impact on artistic creation during this period.

Many of the works are present thanks to the Florence and Tuscany museum loans together with other important Italian museums (Naples and Milan), in addition to the collaboration of the main museums in Europe (London, Berlin and Frankfurt among others) and the United States (New York or Washington).

A very positive aspect to take into account of this exhibition is that several of the works have returned to their former glory after a restoration campaign led jointly by the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and the Louvre, allowing visitors to fully appreciate magnificently restored masterpieces.

The exhibition will be open to the public until January 6, 2014.
