Della Robbia: Sculpting with Color in Renaissance Florence

$ 45
This product is SOLD OUT.


Luca della Robbia's (1400-82) invention of an innovative technique for creating glazed terra-cotta sculptures was a major scientific and artistic discovery of the Italian Renaissance. Passed down to family members and developed further by each generation, the closely held 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. Hardcover, 176 pages
