Agnolo Bronzino Gallery

Florentine Mannerist painter Agnolo Bronzino was the pupil and adopted son of renowned artist Pontormo. He was court painter to Duke Cosimo I de Medici for most of his career, and his work influenced the course of European court portraiture for a century. Cold, cultured, and unemotionally analytical, his portraits convey a sense of almost insolent assurance. Bronzino was also a poet, and his most personal portraits are perhaps those of other literary figures. Click on the following thumbnails to view Agnolo Bronzino's works.
