Madonna and Child

Workshop of Andrea del Verrocchio Italian

Not on view

Verrocchio, a great sculptor, painter, and draftsman ran the most prestigious workshop of the last third of the fifteenth century in Florence. (Botticelli and the young Leonardo were among those associated with the shop.) This picture—of a type favored for private devotion—is of fine quality. Based on a design by Verrocchio, it dates about 1470. Although the left side of the Madonna's face is badly damaged, passages such as the Child's head convey the original quality of the painting.
