Both tell the biblical story of David versus Goliath, as told in I Samuel 1728-51, in their graves David. David was a Shepherd boy who killed the large Goliath with nothing but a slingshot in his hands. Michelangelo displays David onwards the battle while Donatello shows David after the battle with Goliath. Michelangelo and Donatello were cardinal of four noteworthy artists who have haved a statue depicting their image of David Bernini and Andrea del Verrocchio were the others, but Michelangelos and Donatellos were far more(prenominal) famous. Donatello had a more detailed and wide-ranging knowledge of ancient sculpture than any other artist of his day. Some time between 1404 and 1407, he became a m ember of the workshop of Lorenzo Ghiberti, who taught Donatello how to sculpt in bronze. Donatello, the first to create a statue of David, did so between the years of 1430-1440. This bronze figure was life-sized at 52 and was nude, which was done for the first time that we know of since antiquity. 4David is seen with a womanish body structure that serves both as a possible translation for Jonathans love for him as well as to show that Davids accomplishment in tossing the stone at Goliath was not a result of his feminine physic, but rather of Gods will. 1Donatello was a very homosexual person and mogul have drawn upon it in his characterization of David. 1The sophistication of the gleaming bronze, unneurotic with Davids self-absorption, feminine pose, and slime, graceful, ad... ...isplays David before the battle while Donatello shows David after the battle with Goliath. 2Michelangelo shows the guesswork where David might have heard that his people are hesitating and he s ees Goliath jeering and mocking them.

I do not think we will ever so see works as magnificent as these in our lifetime.
