Portrait of Andrea del Verrocchio (?)</em>, Lorenzo di Credi, c1500<br />
< previous | next >

First Florentine period 1464/69 - 1481/83

By now Leonardo is employed as an artist in his own right but continues to work in the studio of Andrea del Verrocchio. He probably contributed to Verrocchio’s The Baptism of Christ around this time.

Leonardo is among those charged of sodomy with Jacopo Saltarelli, a 17-year old apprentice in a goldsmith’s workshop. The charge is not followed up.
