The Arts Society Horsham is proud to present this fascinating lecture given by the fabulous Jo Walton.
Donatello may have been born in Florence over 600 years ago but his sculpture is so powerful that it still speaks directly to us today. Working alongside masters such as Brunelleschi Ghiberti and Masaccio he was one of the pioneers of the Renaissance and helped to change the way people looked at the world. From delicate idealism and startling realism to the astonishing emotional force of his later works this survey looks at the huge range of his sculpture setting it against the vivid and colourful world of Italian politics in the age of the Renaissance.
