Bronzino in Florence in September 2010 at Palazzo Strozzi
Considered one of the greatest painters of the sixteenth century, the work of Agnolo di Cosimo Tori, known as Bronzino embodied the fullness of the Mannerist style. Bronzino. Artist and Poet, the first exhibition to be devoted to his paintings, will be staged at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence
Bronzino's work will be part of a major exhibition at the Palazzo
from 24 September 2010 to 23 January 2011, which will include some of his paintings from museums such as Florence's Uffizi, the Louvre in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, alongside works by his master Pontormo and his best loved pupil, Alessandro Allori.
The show will bring together a wide variety of Bronzino’s masterpieces, many of them displayed together for the first time. Alongside the works conserved in the Uffizi, the exhibition will present works such as the Adoration of the Shepherds from the Szépművészeti Múzeum in Budapest, the Portrait of Young Man with a Book from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and two versions of the Holy Family and Saint John, from the Louvre and the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna. In addition, the newly restored Panciatichi Crucifix and the lost right-hand panel that was originally part of the Besançon Altarpiece will be on public display for the first time.
