Verrocchio, the master of Leonardo shows her at Palazzo Strozzi

From March 9 to July 14, 2019 Palazzo Strozzi and the National Bargello Museum celebrate Andrea del Verrocchio, an artist symbol of the Renaissance in Florence, through a large exhibition that will host over 120 works including paintings, sculptures and drawings from the most important museums and collections of the worlds like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Uffizi Galleries in Florence.
The exhibition, with a special section at the Bargello National Museum, brings together for the first time celebrated masterpieces by Verrocchio and works by the most famous artists of the second half of the fifteenth century linked to his workshop, such as Domenico del Ghirlandaio, Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino and Leonardo da Vinci, his most famous pupil, whose training and exchange with the master can be reconstructed through exceptional loans and unpublished comparisons.
The exhibition, curated by two of the greatest art experts of the fifteenth century, Francesco Caglioti and Andrea De Marchi, is one of the flagship events of the Leonardo celebrations of 2019 and is the first retrospective ever dedicated to Verrocchio, showing at the same time the beginnings of Leonardo da Vinci, offering a look at the artistic production in Florence between 1460 and 1490, the era of Lorenzo the Magnificent.
