We notice the blue of the Virgin in Luca della Robbia, too. His terracotta glazes of ivory white with Virgin Mary blue are a delicate understanding of God. Several attributions of her as the Madonna and Child were made by their workshop and are still in existence today  in Florence. The della Robbia blue is quite frequent with the continuing company but nothing exceeds the artistic worth of Luca della Robbia and his beautiful offerings to her, the Virgin Mary. There is a fine contribution also attributed to Andrea della Robbia, a relief portrait also known as simply, Portrait as a Girl. This fine representation is also a Heavenly account and holds Virgin Mary blue in your heart.
