James Franco Reimagines the Della Robbia

New York | November 2016

This season, Sotheby’s has invited actor and filmmaker James Franco to contribute to our ongoing Artist Response Series – commissioned pieces created in response to a work of art that captivates their imagination. Reacting to the vibrant  sculptures in Sotheby's selling exhibition Glazed: The Legacy of the Della Robbia, Franco’s video is a contemporary reinterpretation of the Della Robbia’s pioneering technique that highlights the enduring power and influence of these Renaissance masters.
