Agnolo BRONZINO, Florence 1503-1572, was a pupil of Pontormo who soon developed his own trademark highly polished style of courtly portraiture, first for the court of the Della Rovere in Pesaro but mainly back in Florence for Duke Cosimo I (who ruled 1537-74) for whom he also planned the wedding decorations, and various interior decorations, for whom he drew tapestry cartoons, and created the fresco cycle for the chapel in the residential part of the Ducal Palace (Palazzo Vecchio to us) for Cosimo’s wife, Eleonora.

The Uffizi contain many of his portraits, including those of Eleonora and many of her children and of Lucrezia Panciatichi. All include masterly renditions of their clothing and jewelry.

Pitti’s Palatine Gallery boasts his portrait of Giudobaldo II della Rovere.

In the church of San Lorenzo, one can admire his vast fresco of the martyrdom of the self-same saint on a grill. Bronzino’s most enigmatic painting, however, is probably his Allegory with Venus and Cupid at the National Gallery, London.
