New V&A Galleries

Today the V&A Museum in London opened its new Medieval & Renaissance Galleries, admission free. Ten newly-designed galleries display the V&A's extensive collection of medieval and Renaissance treasures, brought together for the first time. You'll find sculptures by Donatello, Michelangelo and Giambologna, Leonardo da Vinci's notebooks and many other priceless gems. Click the title link to learn more. I've illustrated this post with Donatello's David, a cast of which is in the V&A collection. Two years ago I compared the four greatest David's and selected Verrocchio's as my favourite. (CLICK to see if you agree with my choice. I gave my reasons.)
