High Renaissance sculptors are distinguished from their predecessors by a preoccupation with form, and the naturalistic style of the Early Renaissance gave way to an ideal style, first manifested in the works of Michelangelo. The author traces the development of this style in Andrea and Jacopo Sansovino, Benvenuto Cellini, Giambologna, Pietro Tacca, Leone Leoni, Alessandro Vittoria and others." (dj).
