Summary "A "Renaissance man" in every way, Andrea del Verrocchio (c. 1435-1488) was an exceptionally versatile artist whose talents encompassed sculpting in all media, painting, drawing, architecture, and even engineering. Verrocchio was highly skilled in modeling, and carved marble and wood with expressive sensitivity. His elegant, confident drawings form a key point of contact between sculpture and painting. He also led one of the most vibrant workshops of the Renaissance, where many gifted artists of the era were trained, including Lorenzo di Credi, Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Pietro Perugino, and Leonardo da Vinci. This book accompanies the first-ever exhibition of the artist's work in the United States. The text focuses on the core group of widely attributed works-some fifty sculptures, paintings, and drawings-including those unable to travel to the exhibition in Washington. Through scholarly essays, comprehensive catalog entries, and extensive illustrations, this book presents Verrocchio as one of the most important and influential of all Florentine artists. Technical investigation by a collaborative team of conservators and scientists will compliment new art historical research to shed light on Verrocchio's innovative genius in all media"-- Provided by publisher.
