An English edition monograph on the Della Robbia family. Luca della Robbia (1399/1400–1482), a master sculptor in marble and bronze, invented a glazing technique for terracotta sculpture that positioned him as one of the most innovative artists of the 15th century. He passed his technique down to his nephew Andrea della Robbia and subsequent generations, who achieved new heights of refinement and durability in modeling and color. Today, the sculptures created by Luca and his family workshop retain their brilliant opaque whites, deep cerulean blues, and botanical greens, purples, and yellows over modeling that makes them powerful and engaging examples of Italian Renaissance art.
