Donatello (pictured) was an early Renaissance Italian sculptor from Florence.

Donatello was the son of Niccolò di Betto Bardi, who was a member of the Florentine Wool Combers Guild, and was born in Florence, most likely in the year 1386. Donatello was educated in the house of the Martelli family. He apparently received his early artistic training in a goldsmith's workshop, and then worked briefly in a studio.

****Fun fact- Donatello is also the purple Ninja Turtle
