franco is a true artist



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.

“to mimic and modernize these sculptures of della robbia, i wanted to create living icons emphasizing the glazing process,” franco said in a release of his approach to the project
