Leonardo da Vinci - The Paintings

Paintings by Leonardo from 1470 to 1516

By


Here you'll find a chronological survey of Leonardo da Vinci's work as a painter, from his earliest 1470s efforts as an apprentice in Verrocchio's workshop, to his final painted piece, St. John the Baptist (1513-16).

Along the way, you will note works that are (1) fully by Leonardo, (2) collaborative efforts between him and other artists, (3) mostly executed by his pupils, (4) paintings whose authorship is disputed and (5) copies of two famous lost masterpieces. It all makes for an interesting journey through a wholly Leonardesque landscape. Enjoy your excursion!
