Paintings until 1480
by LEONARDO da Vinci

Leonardo was enrolled as a painter in the fraternity of St Luke in Florence in 1472, after serving an apprenticeship with Verrocchio. Vasari attributed to Leonardo one of the angels in Verrocchio's Baptism of Christ. Leonardo stayed in Florence until 1482. Several paintings are attributed to this early Florentine period, notably an exquisite Annunciation in the Uffizi and a portrait of Ginevra Benci (National Gallery of Art, Washington).
