Few sculptures are as famous as Michelangelo's David, and if you've ever seen it you'll understand why. The masterpiece of the Renaissance period was completed in 1504, when Michelangelo was just 29 years old, and today over 8 million people per year visit the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence so they can marvel at the iconic marble statue.
Donato (1386 – 1466 . Florence), also known as Donatello, was an early Renaissance Italian painter and sculptor. He is known for his work in bas-relief, a form of shallow relief sculpture that, in Donatello's case, incorporated significant 15th-century developments in perspectival illusionism.
