This exhibition examines the origins of the Renaissance, an era of major artistic and cultural transformation which began in Florence in the early part of the 15th century.
Central to the exhibition is sculpture, which played an important role in the Renaissance, and the 140 works displayed into ten thematic sections are the work of major artists such as Donatello, Ghiberti, Michelozzo, Desiderio da Settignano and Mino da Fiesole.
In addition to sculptures, some of which are monumental, there are paintings, drawings, manuscripts, silver and gold artefacts and tin-glazed earthenware.
The exhibition comes to the Louvre from Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, where it was on show from March until August.
