The palace is the national museum, and among its grand collections the work of the della Robbia family can best be studied.
Can these have been of terra cotta of the della Robbia school?
It is a fine modern zeit-geist piece of declamation to come out of the rather over-sweet della Robbia period of art.
While producing these works in enamelled earthen-ware, Robbia also painted on the flat.
To tell what Robbia did accomplish we must glance at his personal history.
Once the Madre de Deus was adorned with several della Robbia placques.
The work called Robbia ware was terra-cotta relief covered with enamel.
