The first comprehensive retrospective devoted to Andrea del Verrocchio opened at Palazzo Strozzi on March 9, with an accompanying section at the Bargello Museum, both running until July 14, 2019. The exhibition brings together masterpieces by the 15th-century artist, contextualized with works from his forefathers and peers, as well as by the pupils he trained, including Leonardo da Vinci, Pietro Perugino, Domenico Ghirlandaio and Sandro Botticelli.

Support The Florentine

The Florentine is still here.

“Thank you, The Florentine, for the support you’ve offered to the city of Florence during such a difficult time.”

—Andrea
