Biography

Giovanni Della Robbia

Giovanni Della Robbia
(Florence 1469 - 1529/1530)

Giovanni Della Robbia, the third son of Andrea, was considered by Giorgio Vasari to be much less gifted than his brothers.
Although highly industrious, the quality of his work was inconsistent. Nonetheless, he kept the family workshop going after it had been abandoned by his brothers in 1525 when they moved to the Marche region of Italy and to France.
He worked as a sculptor, decorator and when necessary also as a potter.
