poster for "The Drawings of Bronzino" Exhibition

This event has ended.

This exhibition is the first ever dedicated to Agnolo Bronzino (1503–1572), and will present nearly all the known drawings by, or attributed to, this leading Italian Mannerist artist, who was active primarily in Florence. A painter, draftsman, academician, and enormously witty poet, Bronzino became famous as the court artist to the Duke Cosimo I de’ Medici and his beautiful wife, the Duchess Eleonora di Toledo. This monographic exhibition will contain approximately 60 drawings from European and North-American collections, many of which have never before been on public view.

    This is a wonderful exhibition of timeless beauty. The drawings are exquisite, Bronzino was master of line, and light and shadow. He was unknow to me. I'm glad I saw this exhibition. www.dob2010.com
