Il Bronzino : November 23



Venus, Cupid, Folly, and Time, by Il Bronzino.

His sobriquet "Bronzino" was most likely coined after his darker skin.

Florentine painter Il Bronzino, whose portraits are prime examples of the Mannerist style and whose works are classic embodiments of the courtly ideal under the Medici dukes of the mid-16th century, died this day in 1572.
