Desiderio's sculpture featured in new exhibit at the National Gallery

"Desiderio da Settignano: Sculptor of Renaissance Florence" will be on display at the National Gallery of Art, in Washington, DC, through October 8.

The exhibit brings together approximately 28 works -- many coming to the U.S. for the first time -- by the artist and his immediate circle, ranging from highly original portrait busts of children to subtle low-relief carvings of religious subjects.
