LORENZO GHIBERTI

Lorenzo Ghiberti (1378-1455) was an Italian sculptor, goldsmith, writer, architect and designer who was a major figure in the transition between Gothic and Renaissance art. He is best remembered for his bronze sculpted doors of the baptistery in Florence Cathedral which depict scenes from the Old and New Testaments. Michelangelo said the latter were worthy to be the gates of paradise. Uccello and Donatello both trained in Ghiberti's workshop.

Ghiberti's Commentaries - incomplete and written throughout his life - give a fascinating account of his own career and of Italian art history.
