John and David

Posted by

Two sculptures by Donatello. On the left is John the Baptist and on the right the wonderful and somewhat camp bronze of David.
My thanks to all who commented on my pictures despite my lack of response.
Things should improve again now :)

AAh the first one is in the museum behind the Duomo. Donatello is one of my favourites, and I agree the young David is quite 'camp'. :)

I am particularly struck by the sculpture of JOhn - the look on his face is poignant.

Wonderful emotion and expression captured in John's face! Not too sure of David's pose, as if to express impatience.
