Verrocchio, Master of Leonardo

The exhibition brings together for the first time the superb masterpieces of Andrea del Verrocchio, one of the greatest masters of the Quattrocento, alongside a series of crucially important works by such artists as  Pietro Perugino, Domenico Ghirlandaio and his most celebrated pupil, Leonardo da Vinci, the 500th anniversary of whose death falls in 2019.

Curated by Francesco Caglioti and Andrea De Marchi, and the product of a joint venture with the Museo Nazionale del Bargello which will be hosting one of its sections, the exhibition celebrates an artist who, as painter, sculptor, goldsmith and draughtsman, brilliantly interpreted the values of the Renaissance in the Florence of the Medici, the city of Cosimo the Elder, Piero de’ Medici and Lorenzo the Magnificent, influencing with his workshop an entire generation of 15th century masters in Italy and in the rest of Europe.

The challenge facing the Fondazione from the outset has been to bring international quality exhibition and cultural events to Florence and Tuscany.

On the palazzo’s Piano Nobile and in the Strozzina area the Fondazione organises art exhibitions ranging from the art of the ancient world via the Renaissance to the modern and contemporary era.

From: 09 March 2019
