Leonardo’s began when his father moved to Florence as the procurator of the
Convent of St. Martire in 1469. There, Leonardo worked in the legendary
“workshop” of Andrea del Verrocchio. He worked together with Perugino,
Botticelli, Ghirlandalo, and Lorenzo di Credi. Leonardo worked with other people
on the painting Baptism of Christ.
He regestered in the Guild of Florentine
Painters and becomes the Guild’s debtor in 1472. A year later, he paints a Wide
View Over A Plain with a view of the Montalbano towards Valdarno and
Valdinievole. It is the first reliable point of reference in the cronological
index of Leonardo’s works. He was charged with homosexuality in 1476 and was
released on probation. He continues to work in Verrocchio’s workshop. Lwonardo
creates the first folios of the Condex Atlanticus two years later.In 1480
Leonardo went to work for Lorenzo Magnifico in the garden of S. Marco.
