The Gates of Paradise (East Doors) compr - Lorenzo Ghiberti as art print or hand painted oil.
The subject of my new novel (!) The Gates of Paradise by Ghiberti. After reading and studying these doors at a distance, seeing them in person was a dream come true. Stayed in a room that was directly above the workshop where these were made in Firenze. Out of this world experience!
Gates of Paradise
Gates of Paradise These gleaming bronze doors by Ghiberti at the Baptistery were considered by Michelangelo to be "the gates of paradise". Ghiberti applied laws of mathematics to create the receding depth that was fundamental in Renaissance art. All ten door panels depicted scenes from the New Testament. Photo by cheungcalove, Flickr
