St. Mary Magdalene, Gregor Erhart, 1510, 
Musee du Louvre, Paris

Most of the stone work in the Bargello in Florence has to be there for climatic reasons so the stone can be housed naturally. The room that houses the Martelli Saint John by Settignano and Donatello also houses mostly Donatello sculptures. The rest of the museum includes sculpture from other Renaissance sculptors such as Verrocchio and the della Robbia family. Donatello also has a large amount of sculptures housed in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo in Florence where you will also find Saint Mary Magdalene.
