Description
In 1452 Florentine sculptor Lorenzo Ghiberti unveiled a masterpiece that had been a quarter-century in the making: ten gilded bronze panels intricately depicting scenes from the Old Testament, created for the 15-foot doors of the Baptistery in the Piazza del Duomo in Florence. For centuries The Gates of Paradise has been counted among the great masterworks of Western art. With images up to 15 x 12 inches, including larger-than-life closeups that reveal remarkable details, this book displays the full glory and elaborate sculpting of many of the newly restored bronze panels. Essays describe Ghiberti's artistry and the painstaking restoration process.
