Lorenzo Ghiberti was a famous early Renaissance artist, best known for his three dimensional bronzed reliefs on the doors of the Florentine Baptistry. By learning about his work, we get to learn about relief art and it's somewhat three-dimensional nature. We can also gain an understanding of the role of the church and religion in Renaissance art and culture and the role of architecture in art.
