This August, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, will host the country’s first major exhibition dedicated to the Italian Renaissance master, Luca Della Robbia. Della Robbia: Sculpting with Color in Renaissance Florence will feature stunning glazed terracotta sculptures by the artist—many of which are on loan from leading international institutions, including the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The show will also include works by members of Della Robbia’s family, who passed down his groundbreaking glazing technique from generation to generation.
