  Lorenzo Ghiberti
  Italian Early Renaissance Sculptor, 1378-1455
  Isaac Sends Esau to Hunt
  1425-52 Bronze Baptistry, Florence Following his journey to Rome in 1416, Ghiberti showed himself ever more receptive to ancient art. The models are never copied in a servile fashion, but are, rather, exploited as an inexhaustible source of inspiration, and transformed by a wholly modern, dynamic interpretation. The group of women on the left side, whose draperies move in folds revealing the forms of the body or fly in wind-lifted arabesques, appear in several scenes on the Gates of Paradise, each time in a new version. They are borrowed from antique sculpture, as in the canephore, whose ornamental potential was often to be exploited in Florentine renaissance painting. Artist: GHIBERTI, Lorenzo Painting Title: Isaac Sends Esau to Hunt (panel from the eastern door) , 1401-1450 Painting Style: Italian , sculpture Type: religious
