In the 15th century, Luca della Robbia invented a glazing technique for sculpture characterized by brilliant opaque whites and deep cerulean blues. The Della Robbia family workshop flourished in Florence for about a century, producing expressive artworks for all spheres of life. The exhibition features about 50 objects, mostly from American collections but including six important loans from Italy, never seen in the US before.
