The first major survey of the work of Andrea del Verrocchio, one of the most transformative Florentine artists of his generation.
Andrew Butterfield is an independent scholar. His books include Donatello in Motion and Body and Soul: Masterpieces of Italian Renaissance and Baroque Sculpture.
"[A] catalog whose attributions and speculations on who painted
what will keep connoisseurs debating for years."---Jason Farago,
New York Times
"One of The Art Newspaper's Favourite Books of 2019"
"I am fascinated by artists like Verrocchio who work in all media and that's shown very well in the exhibition and catalogue. He started as a jeweller and you can see the relation to his later work: something intimate and precious in the way he paints, draws and sculpts. Edited by Andrew Butterfield, who wrote the monograph on Verrocchio and has worked on the subject for so long, this catalogue proves that if you want to make a good exhibition, you also need good research."---Taco Dibbets, The Art Newspaper
