Leonardo da Vinci paints The Annunciation for the Olivetan monastery of San Bartolomeo, near Florence.


Leonardo da Vinci paints The Annunciation for the Olivetan monastery of San Bartolomeo, near Florence.

August 5

Leonardo da Vinci produces a pen and ink drawing of the Arno valley that is dated to this day. It is said to be one of the earliest Italian landscape drawings that focuses on the particular character of the location.



Leonardo da Vinci receives a commission to paint The Adoration of the Magi for the Monks of San Donato a Scopeto, which he leaves unfinished.


May 1

The coinage was changed: that is, silver coins began to be used; and it was decided that the grossone should be worth 16 quattrini and a half, like the old silver ones. All the taxes were to be paid in silver, which meant a little increase to the people, as a quarter more had to be paid, when there was need, on the contrary, to relieve them. This increase was made by divine permission, on account of our sins; because the poor are generally worse than the rich and great. Praise be to God!


Uffizi acquires The Annunciation and ascribes it to Domenico Ghirlandaio.


Karl Eduard von Liphart attributes The Annunciation to the youthful Leonardo da Vinci, an attribution which has since not been overturned.
