''The sculptors of the Italian Renaissance transformed their Classical and regional heritage.

The Renaissance notion of the artist as genius is vividly embodied in contemporary sculptors, from Nicola Pisano through Brunelleschi and Donatello to Michelangelo and Giambologna. Roberta Olson surveys the extraordinary artistic achievements of the period, which were to affect for ever the practice of Western art.''
