The Frascione Fine Art Collection dates back from many generations, beginning in 1893 by virtue of the great passion for art of its founder, Enrico Frascione. The Collection has been handed down through four generations: it is now Federico Gandolfi Vannini, the great-grandson of the founder Enrico, who today owns and directs the Galleria Frascione Arte, established in 2009 in the prestigious Via Maggio, Florence. Federico, carrying on the great passion of his family, has further enriched the centenary heritage of the collection.

VERROCCHIO, MASTER OF LEONARDO
From 9 March to 14 July 2019, Palazzo Strozzi, Florence

Andrea del Verrocchio, an emblematic artist of the Florentine Renaissance, will be celebrate in a major exhibition showcasing over 120 paintings, sculptures and drawings from the world’s leading museums and collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of New York, the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Gallerie degli Uffizi in Florence.

The exhibition, curated by two leading experts in the art of 15th Century, Francesco Caglioti and Andrea De Marchi, is one of the flagship events in the programme of celebrations marking the 500th anniversary of Leonardo’s death and is the first retrospective ever devoted to Verrocchio, while also exploring the early years of Leonardo di Vinci’s career and providing an overview of artistic output in Florence from roughly 1460 to 1490, the age of Lorenzo the Magnificent.
