These charming large molded and colorfully glazed terracotta wall sculptures depict Christ and Saint John.

History: Della Robbia was an Italian family of highly skilled artists in Renaissance Florence. Their workshop developed ingenious techniques that gave ceramic sculptures a prominent place in public spaces. Luca della Robbia, the family’s original innovator, experimented with ways to create large-scale ceramic sculptures, using durable glazes that made them suitable for exterior display and bright colors that heightened their visibility. These techniques are still used today.
