Reproduction prints of Lorenzo Ghiberti sculptures are most frequently from his Gates of Paradise, such is the beauty of this series plus the high profile that they still enjoy today

The Early Renaissance artists still retain huge respect with the art world, and many will still seek reproduction prints of their work in order to add a touch of style and colour to their own homes. Sculptors' finest works can sometimes be found as small models but these are much harder to source and so most people will simply order photographs of their favourite piece.

In many cases tourists who have just returned home from a memorable holiday want to add a small momento of their trip to their home, perhaps they saw Michelangelo's David or some of his frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. There can also be advantages to such products - it is particularly to take accurate photographs yourself when visiting some of these artworks, with many other people around ruining the pictures or you may not even be allowed to take any photos at all.

With regards prints of work from Lorenzo Ghiberti, there maybe an individual panel from his extraordinary Gates of Paradise that you particularly like. Prints can be found that zoom in on individual elements of these doors, allowing us to appreciate the fine detail added by Lorenzo Ghiberti over 20 years. Each panel can reasonably be considered an individual artwork in its own right, with each one being carefully considered as part of the overall theme.

The dark sculptured artworks on these doors may not make the most suitable choice for an art print, because of the lack of variety in colour. One may instead, therefore, choose photographs of some of his full length portrait sculptures instead, where the colour scheme is much lighter and there is also a greater contrast between the different elements of the piece.

Those wishing to see Ghiberti's work in person should head to the home of the Renaissance itself - Florence. Whilst the Italian Renaissance included contributions from Venice, Rome and several other cities, it was this city which played the most significant role. Despite the rise in popuarlity of modern art there is still great respect and interest in these earlier artistic styles.

The city itself also has a great selection of famous sculptures from other artists plus also frescoes and Renaissance paintings. The role of drawing in this art movement has also started to gain more attention in recent years, with draughtsmen such as Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael receiving exhibitions of their work purely in this medium for the first time.
