Lorenzo Ghiberti (1378-1455) was the famous winner of the 1401 competition to design a set of bronze doors to the Florence Baptistry. Originally meant to be a set of 28 Old Testament scenes, the theme of the doors was later changed to a series of New Testament scenes, plus saints, each in a quatrefoil frame. Executed between 1403 and 1424, the Baptistry doors were worked on by many of the future masters of the Florentine school, including Donatello, Uccello and Antonio Pollaiuolo.
