Please write a 1750+ word paper tracing how the Old Testament figure of David is represented in Renaissance art. Begin your paper with a brief overview of the story of David, his symbolic connection to Florence in the Renaissance, and then compare the bronze figure of David by Donatello, with the later bronze David by Andrea del Verrocchio, and finally, conclude your discussion with the famous marble sculpture of David carved by Michelangelo in 1501-1504. Explain in detail why this particular sculpture is so innovative, and shows a break from the Early Renaissance of the Quattrocento to the High Renaissance of the Cinquecento.
