VERROCCHIO, Andrea del
(b. 1435, Firenze, d. 1488, Venezia)

Lady with Primroses (detail)

Museo Nazionale del Bargello, Florence

The bust was admired by Florentines the most for the beauty of her hands. They have this jointless quality, or one that transcends joints; Botticelli would immortalize the same qualities in his painting. It should not be forgotten that Botticelli and Verrocchio were very friendly.

The detail shows the left hand of the portrait bust.
