Outer appearances and inner feelings became the key artistic themes of sculptors and painters working in 15th-century Italy. As depictions of the body’s capabilities became increasingly innovative, especially in sculpture, artists became increasingly aware of the potential affect such mind-body interplay might have on the viewer. This exhibition illuminates the deepening artistic relationship between physicality and spirituality, beginning with Donatello, who headed up the latter part of the Quattrocento, and ending with Michelangelo, at the dawn of the 16th century. —C.J.F.
