some artists may be considered temperamental, because they ask for artistic freedom, not many patrons are or where able to provide that....
this is Donatello
one of the most important renaissance artist in Italy, much is known about his work. mostly a marble and bronze sculptor.
he is called a realist, because his work has so much life that its even considers a portrait sculptures. he experimented a lot with marble reliefs and different techniques. he worked until his death under the service of the Medici. I am personally marveled by the fluently that his work has, as well as the amount of detail in each piece.
