1200 Years of Italian Sculpture

This image gallery of 1200 Years of Italian Sculpture is a visual treat, including Italy's finest sculptural works from medieval through modern times. The site is mostly in Italian, but offers English descriptions of the works.

A rich black background gives the feeling of being in a darkened museum room. The images are very beautiful and are offered in both thumbnail and larger versions.

The site can be explored by several modes including an alphabetical listing of artists; individual page listings by period (High Medieval, Romantic, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Modern); and by the Italian city where the sculptural work can be found.

This is the kind of site that will make you want to spend next exploring museums in Italy. 1200 Years of Italian Sculpture is an excellent resource for some of the most inspiring art of the Western World. Look through the sections on Rome and Florence (Firenze) for some excellent museum tours. The site has very little text, but the striking quality of the photography speaks for itself. This is a site to savor.
