The famous Baptism Of Christ c. 1472 is by Leonardo’s master, Andrea del Verrocchio, and was commissioned by the monks of San Salvi near Florence. Leonardo was 23 at the time it was painted and part of his contribution was the angel holding the mantle.The draperies on Leonardo’s angel are rather stiff and quit hard. This produced a curious system of folds and it is most likely these draperies were painted from drawings made using this process. Verrocchio’s style was very much traditional for the day; distant plains and hills with rocks and the occasional scattered tree, often with a somewhat plastic look. Leonardo’s work already showed great features with water, mists, sunlight and shadow. The angel and Leonardo’s part of the landscape are painted in oil.
