Madonna and Child
MetadataShow full item record
Andrea Pisano's marble relief of the Madonna and Child with maiolica insets was originally located above the north door of the campanile, or bell tower, beside the cathedral in Florence. The striking blue colour of the tiles in the background was achieved with the use of copper sulphate as opposed to the cobalt oxide used in the work of Luca della Robbia.
