Renaissance sculptor Bertoldo di Giovanni (ca. 1440-1491) was a student of Donatello, a teacher of Michelangelo, and a favourite of Lorenzo de' Medici "il Magnifico," his principal patron. Bertoldo was one of the first sculptors to create statuettes in bronze. With an overview of the artist's entire oeuvre--including The Frick Collection's Shield Bearer, the only Bertoldo sculpture outside of Europe--this major scholarly catalogue is the most substantial text on Bertoldo ever produced. Featured are contributions from renowned international scholars who bring into focus the sculptor's unique position at the heart of the artistic and political landscape in fifteenth-century Italy.
