Robbia, Andrea della (Italian sculptor and ceramicist, 1435-1525 or 1528)

Note: Andrea della Robbia was one of the most successful and prolific of the della Robbia family. He trained with his uncle, Luca della Robbia, assisting in his workshop, and by 1470, had assumed its supervision. Typically, his works are more complex than Luca's, with more expressive figures and compositions. He worked on many commissions during the 1470s, and also began a series of tin-glazed terracotta alterpieces for the Franciscan convent at La Verna. By the1480s, there were della Robbia works throughout Tuscany and Umbria, notably Adoration, Crucifixion, and Ascension scenes. When Andrea became a follower of Savonarola in the early 1490s, his style changed as reflected in more simple and static figures.
