ROBBIA, Luca della
(b. 1399/1400, Firenze, d. 1482, Firenze)

Madonna and Child between Saints

Glazed terracotta, 111 x 230 cm
Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, Urbino

This relief was executed by Luca della Robbia for the portal of the church of San Domenico in Urbino. The represented saints are Dominic, Thomas Aquinas, Albertus Magnus, and Peter the Martyr. It is likely that this lunette was an important influence on the development of the young Raphael in Urbino.
