While he isn’t a household name in this country, Andrea del Verrocchio (c. 1435-1488) is one of the most important and influential artists of the Italian Renaissance. An exhibition opening this weekend at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. will hopefully bring him some long-overdue recognition here in America.

“Verrocchio: Sculptor and Painter of Renaissance Florence” is the first comprehensive exhibition dedicated to this artist ever mounted in the United States. Like the first-ever American retrospective on Tintoretto held at the National Gallery earlier this year, it’s extremely unlikely that such a logistically complex exhibition as this will come to these shores again within our lifetime, so you should absolutely make plans to go see it.
