“Leonardo retained much of the spirit of Verrocchio’s bottega (the latter, after all, behaved in much the same way). He was something like a famous dress designer in our day who designs for both haute couture and the ready-to-wear market; he may grant licenses to use his name but is not always protected against plagiarism. Some designs are essentially in his hand, others are produced by a team of associates working directly under him, while others again may emerge from different fashion houses entirely, with or without permission.”
~ “Leonardo. The artist and the man”, Serge Bramly.
