Verrochio was the preeminent sculptor in late fifteenth-century Florence. This beautiful monograph is the first comprehensive examination of Verrocchio's sculptures. Based on new archival, technical, and contextual research, the book thoroughly investigates the style, patronage, function, and iconography of the works. Although rich with information, the text is extremely clear and highly readable. The book is amply illustrated with more than 260 photographs, and the colour plates illustrate some of the most beautiful images of Renaissance sculpture.
