About Michelozzo

  • Michelozzo di Bartolomeo Michelozzi (1396–1472) was an Italian architect and sculptor.
  • Considered one of the great pioneers of architecture during the Renaissance, Michelozzo was a favored Medici architect who was extensively employed by Cosimo de' Medici.
  • He was a pupil of Lorenzo Ghiberti in his early years and later collaborated with Donatello. Known primarily for designing Palazzo Medici Riccardi in Florence, he is often overshadowed by his contemporaries Donatello in sculpture and Brunelleschi in architecture.
  • "He remained for his biographers a shadowy, active, competent, second-rate figure, circling around the glowing glory of the two dominant masters."
