Now at that time Verroccio was working on a panel picture showing the Baptism of Christ by St John, for which Leonardo painted an angel who was holding some garments; and despite his youth, he executed it in such a manner that his angel was far better than the figures painted by Andrea. This was the reason why Andrea would never touch coulours again, he was so ashamed that a boy understood their use better than he did.

Short biographies of Renaissance artists, including da Vinci, Fra Filippo Lippi, and Botticelli. Recommended particularly for those with an interest in art history, of which I am a fan.

Mdargusch I will check this out. I majored in art history in college so this subject is right up my alley. 2y
