"Madonna and Child" by Andrea della Robbia
Created at the end of the 15th century and located in the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, FL, this relief sculpture is meant to recall carved marble, rather than the more inexpensive terracotta of which it was made. The sculptural quality of the figures in the painted image also point to the artist’s interest in three-dimensional, sculpted models. Buona visione!
