Title: First Modern Sculptor: Donatello, The
Movie ID: VT6236
Movie Number: 6236
Description: Donatello (1386-1466) is one of Europe's greatest sculptors. His strong portrayal of human character and expressive style make his work as appealing today as it was revolutionary in his lifetime. Among the many examples included in this in-depth study of Donatello's achievements is a beautiful terra-cotta relief of the Madonna and Child. Neglected for many years, its quality was at last revealed during the filming of this documentary. It is only one of the many sculptures which can definitely be attributed to the artist. Three acclaimed modern sculptors who admire his work, Elisabeth Frink, Peter Rockwell and Henry Moore, describe the superb effects achieved by Donatello's individual inventive techniques. For the first time since recent cleaning and restoration, many of his major sculptures can now be seen in all the brilliance of their color and detail.

Political Science

"The study of political science/law is basically the path of least resistance for me. It is a subject that has always interested me, and one that I have proved to be naturally insightful in. Studying political science isn’t just the study of how governments function or how it is composed, but the study of why it exists and to what ends. In short, it is the study of what makes everything else possible."
