It is thought that Verrocchio began painting in the 1460s, when he worked at Prato with the painter Fra Filippo Lippi. There is only one known painting that was signed by Verrocchio. This is an altarpiece of the Madonna and Child with Saintsin the Cathedral of Pistoia, painted in the late 1470s. There are several more paintings from Verrocchio's studio. They have probably been painted partly by Verrocchio and partly by his students. The most famous of these paintings was done between 1472 and 1475. It is a Baptism of Christ.

Verrochio made two large beautiful things out of stone, a coffin and a wash basin. He is thought to have also carved a Madonna and Childin low relief (an almost-flat stone picture). Verrocchio's most famous sculptures are made in bronze which is a sort of metal. To make a bronze statue, Verrocchio made the statue in wax. Then plaster was put over the wax, and the wax was removed, leaving a mould. The metal was heated over a furnace until it melted and became molten (liquid). The molten metal was poured into the mould and slowly allowed to cool. When the plaster was chipped away, the bronze statue was inside. The statue then needed to be finished and polished.Madonna with seated Child (Gemäldegalerie, Berlin)Tobias and the Angel (National Gallery, London).Statue of Bartolomeo Colleoni, Verrocchio, cast by LeopardiThe Virgin and Child with two Angels(c. 1476-78), Andrea del Verrocchio and Lorenzo di Credi
