List about the best sculptors of all time Sculpture is one of the arts that I like the least but ... I recognize that it is a very difficult art. I liked Greek classics very much: MIRÓN, FIDIAS, LISIPO, etc, etc and above all, MIGUEL ÁNGEL and DONATELLO and of the modern ones I admire EDUARDO CHILLIDA. Which one is yours? In this list about the best sculptors of all time you can find: 50. CONSTANTIN BRANCUSI 49.

CONSTANTIN BRANCUSI Constantin Brâncuşi (Constantin Brancusi in French spelling), (Hobiţa, Gorj district, Romania, February 19, 1876 - Paris, March 16, 1957) was an important Romanian sculptor, considered a pioneer of modernism. His works are in museums in France, the United States, Romania and Australia. 49. LUCCA DELLA ROBBIA Luca Della Robbia, Italian sculptor and ceramist. He was born in Florence in 1400 and died in 1482. According to Giorgio Vasari, Luca was born in 1388 in the house of his ancestors that was underneath the church of San Bernabé in Florence. He was educated, according to the customs of the time, until he learned not only to read, but also to write and tell, as he used to do in almost all the Florentine houses, by his own means. His father placed him, at once, to learn the trade, at the home of the goldsmith Leonardo, son of Giovanni, considered, at that time in Florence, as the best teacher in this art. Born in a family of dyers (robbia means 'granza' in Tuscan, and this word refers to a plant used for dyeing), he started as a marble sculptor and studied ancient sculpture. Luca Della Robbia made the Tribune of the Singers, in the Cathedral of Florence (1431), a very important bas-relief that had to be placed on top of the door of the sacristy. He finished it around 1438-1439. In 1446, Luca and his brother Marco, bought a large house to install a workshop and an oven. In 1448 Marco died leaving in charge of Luca his six nephews, among which stands out Andrea della Robbia who was the best known. Andrea took over the Botega (workshop) on the death of her uncle, and her five brothers worked with him. The most famous is the third son: Giovanni. Afterwards, the workshop would stop working. Not so advanced in Renaissance tendencies formulated by Brunelleschi, Masaccio, Donatello, etc., Luca Della Robbia is a sculptor whose clear sobriety of the planes and rhythms, the classic serenity of the faces, the simple forms and the sensitivity of the light will always be present in his work. He sought the formula to preserve his clay works, which the artist's nephew and his children continued with this same technique. Always according to Vasari: Considering that the clay is worked easily and without great fatigue, it looks for the means of conserving the works once they are finished, it dreams that it finds that means to defend them from the insults of the time, after having experimented with quantity of things, discovers, finally, that coating them with a mixture of tin, antimony and other minerals and mixtures cooked in a special oven, you get an effective effect to preserve the work of clay almost eternally. One of the last sculptures in Giovanni Della Robbia's repertoire titled Visiting the Sick (one of the seven works of charity, according to the Catholic catechism) dated 1525-1529,...
