«… they were all very natural, executed with incredible diligence, and finished so well that nothing more could be desired»
Giorgio Vasari

The catalogue traces the career of Agnolo di Cosimo known as Bronzino, a protagonist of sixteenth-century Florentine culture, from his apprenticeship in the workshop of Jacopo da Pontormo and sojourn in the Marche region to his career as official artist (and portraitist) of the Medici court and painter of sacred works. Many works by Bronzino and his contemporaries (Benvenuto Cellini, Niccolò Tribolo, Baccio Bandinelli, Pierino da Vinci, Alessandro Allori) reveal the close link between the arts: painting and sculpture, but also poetry, demonstrating the multifaceted personality of the artist, author of lofty sonnets in the style of Petrarch and of burlesque poems.
Also included in the exhibition is a work recently reattributed to Bronzino, the Panciatichi Christ Crucified.
