Della Robbia: Exhibition Magnet Set

About the Artist

Andrea della Robbia (1435–1525) carried on the popular and lucrative production of terracotta sculpture covered with enamel glaze, a technique developed in the 1430s and 1440s by his uncle Luca. The glazed coating gave the colors of Della Robbia's works a degree of durability impossible for sculpture that was simply painted. Their white-glazed figures, set off against deep blue grounds and sometimes surrounded by multicolored garlands of fruit or flowers (as in The Adoration of the Child), were in demand as devotional images for churches, homes, and outdoor shrines.
