Della Robbia Ceramic Art Photos

Luca della Robbia (c1400-1482) & his nephew Andrea della Robbia (1425-1525) were Florentine sculptors famed for their tin-glazed terracotta statuary. Their workshops passed to great-nephews Giovanni della Robbia and Girolamo della Robbia. Their styles overlap, so exact attribution is difficult.
