Verrocchio: Sculptor and Painter of Renaissance Florence is the first-ever monographic exhibition in the United States on Andrea del Verrocchio (c. 1435–1488), the innovative artist, painter, sculptor and teacher whose pupils included Leonardo da Vinci, Pietro Perugino and likely Sandro Botticelli as well. The exhibition examines the wealth and breadth of Verrocchio’s artistry by bringing together some 50 of his masterpieces in painting, sculpture and drawing that allow viewers to appreciate how his work in each art form stimulated creativity in the others. The National Gallery of Art is the sole American venue for the exhibition. Verrocchio: Sculpture and Painter of Renaissance Florence is on exhibition on the National Gallery of Art’s main floor in west building through Jan. 12, 2020. nga.gov.
