"The Cantoria" by Luca della Robbia

Luca della Robbia’s magnificent “Cantoria,” or “choir loft,” once hung above a sacristy door in Florence Cathedral. Its 10 marble relief panels illustrate Psalm 150 from the Book of Psalms, which describes different musical ways to praise the Lord. Della Robbia not only masterfully manipulated stone into sublime imagery, but he also celebrated the vitality and energy of youth in his angelic young boys.

Buona visione!
