The Art Gallery, hand-painted ceramics from Florence: Florentine Art of ceramics


Florentine Art of Ceramics

Plates, jars, pots and all ceramics you can find at The Art Gallery are hand decorated following a tradition whose origins date back to the Middle Ages. Refined production of tin-glazed earthenwares was concentrated in central Italy from the later thirteenth century, especially in Florence, and the art of ceramics was at the height of its glory during the Renaissance.
