Bertoldo di Giovanni: The Renaissance of Sculpture in Medici Florence

Published September 23, 2019

The Frick Collection presents the first-ever exhibition on the Florentine sculptor Bertoldo di Giovanni (ca. 1440–1491), a renowned student of Donatello, a teacher of Michelangelo, and a great favorite of Lorenzo “il Magnifico” de’ Medici, his principal patron. More than twenty statues, reliefs, medals, and statuettes — constituting nearly his entire extant oeuvre — are on view exclusively at the Frick, which houses the only sculptural figure by Bertoldo outside of Europe.

The exhibition runs from September 18, 2019 - January 12, 2020 at The Frick Collection, 1 East 70th Street, New York, NY 10021.
