Lorenzo Ghiberti

Lorenzo Ghiberti (1378-1455) was an important renaissance artist. He was mainly a sculptor and metal smith. His greatest project, which took him twenty-one years, were the doors to Florence's baptistery. These gilded bronze doors have twenty-eight panels each depicting a biblical scene from the New Testament. He then spent the next twenty-nine years working on a second door with ten panels depicting scenes from the Old Testament.
