Desiderio da Settignano: Sculptor of Renaissance Florence

The first international exhibition devoted to Italian Renaissance sculptor Desiderio da Settignano (c. 1429–1464) comes to the National Gallery of Art—its only U.S. venue—from July 1 through October 8, 2007. 'Desiderio da Settignano: Sculptor of Renaissance Florence' brings together approximately 28 works—many coming to the U.S. for the first time—by the artist and his immediate circle, ranging from highly original portrait busts of children to subtle low-relief carvings of religious subjects.
