Robbia, Andrea della [Florentine, 1435-1525]


[ 15th Century Artists | Sculptors ]
portrait

Andrea della Robbia, in full Andrea di Marco di Simone della Robbia (born October 20, 1435, Florence [Italy] – died August 4, 1525), Florentine sculptor who was the nephew of Luca della Robbia and assumed control of the family workshop after his uncle's death in 1482.

Like Luca, Andrea della Robbia was apparently trained as a marble sculptor. His best-known works are 10 roundels of foundlings in swaddling clothes on the facade of Filippo Brunelleschi's Ospedale degli Innocenti in Florence (c. 1463). Andrea's interest in narrative sculpture led him to develop from the reliefs of Luca a class of large polychrome reliefs, of which characteristic examples exist at numerous churches in Italy, including the Franciscan shrine at La Verna and Santa Croce in Florence, as well as many museums outside Italy. The development of Andrea's style between 1475 and 1522 can be followed through a sequence of dated or documented works. Many of his smaller reliefs exist in a quantity of versions turned out from the della Robbia studio.

From October of 1916 through January of 1917, Rudolf Steiner gave a series of nine lectures known as the Art Course. These lectures were given the title of: The History of Art. Click here to discover what Steiner said about Andrea della Robbia in the ninth lecture, or in the entire lecture series.
