"The Equestrian Statue of Bartolomeo Colleoni" by Andrea del Verrochio

With the revival of equestrian monuments during the Renaissance, various Italian military leaders looked to immortalize themselves on horseback. One of the most celebrated of these monuments is Verrocchio’s “Equestrian Monument of Bartolomeo Colleone” in Venice. Created between 1480-88, Verrocchio imbued his bronze sculpture with a dramatic sense of energy and movement, along with a sense of unity between horse and rider. Buona visione!
