Della Robbia: Madonna of the Niche, Note Card

About the Artist

The glazed terra-cotta technique invented by Luca della Robbia (1400–1482), along with his exceptional skill as a sculptor, placed him firmly in the first rank of Renaissance artists in the 15th century. As it was passed down to family members and developed further by each generation, the terra-cotta technique achieved new heights of refinement and durability in modeling and color, and was praised for combining elements of painting and sculpture into a new and (in Vasari’s words) “almost eternal” medium.
