Bertoldo di Giovanni

Frick Collection, New York

18 Sep 2019 - 12 Jan 2020

The Renaissance of Sculpture in Medici Florence

Though a student of Donatello and a key influence on Michelangelo, Bertoldo di Giovanni is little known today. With rare loans from the Bargello of commissions from the Medicis, this show sheds new light on his collaboration with other artists. Find out more from the Frick’s website.
