Introduction: the “Donatello Project”

Neville Rowley

 

This volume brings together contributions on sculptures from the Italian Renaissance which are (or were) in the collection of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, starting with the key example of Donatello. Some of these objects, thought to have disappeared since the end of the Second World War, are in fact still preserved on the territory of the Russian Federation. They are presented here in their current state for the first time since 1945.
