Verrocchio’s famous art work, The Baptism of Christ, ca. 1475 (now in the Uffizi) appears to have made quite an impact for young Leonardo da Vinci in the art community. It was Leonardo's work as a mere apprentice painting one of the foreground figures, a blond angel, and the atmospheric landscape background that prompted Verrocchio to give up painting, supposedly angered that he had been surpassed by a child if the tale is true. Leonardo’s backward-turned angel, twisting to face the viewer, caused quite a stir among artists. This device contradicts the traditional composition of forward-facing, horizontal placement of static figures in art up to this time.

Original: Verrocchio's Baptism of Christ, 1472-75, Uffizi, Florence
