His sobriquet, Bronzino, in all probability refers to his relatively dark skin.Bronzino was born in Florence, the son of a butcher. According to his contemporary Vasari, Bronzino was a pupil first of Raffaellino del Garbo, and then of Pontormo, to whom he was apprenticed at 14. Pontormo is thought to have introduced a portrait of Bronzino as a child (seated on a step) into one of his series on Joseph in Egypt now in the National Gallery, London. Pontormo exercised a dominant influence on Bronzino's developing style, and the two were to remain collaborators for most of the former's life. An early example of Bronzino's hand has often been detected in the Capponi Chapel in the church of Santa Felicita by the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Pontormo designed the interior and executed the altarpiece, the masterly Deposition from the Cross and the sidewall fresco Annunciation. Bronzino apparently was assigned the frescoes on the dome, which however have not survived. Of the four empanelled tondi or roundels depicting each of the evangelists, two were said by Vasari to have been painted by Bronzino. His style however is so similar to his master's that scholars still debate the specific attributions.Towards the end of his life, Bronzino took a prominent part in the activities of the Florentine Accademia delle Arti del Disegno, of which he was a founding member in 1563.The painter Alessandro Allori was his favourite pupil, and Bronzino was living in the Allori family house at the time of his death in Florence in 1572 (Alessandro was also the father of Cristofano Allori). Bronzino spent the majority of his career in Florence.Agnolo Bronzino's PaintingsAndrea Doria as Neptune (1550-55), Pinacoteca di Brera, MilanSt. Mark (c. 1525) - Oil on Wood, Capponi Chapel, Santa Felicita, FlorenceSt. Matthew (c. 1525) - Oil on Wood, Capponi Chapel, Santa Felicita, FlorenceSt. Sebastian (1525--1528) - Oil on panel, 87 x 77 cm, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, MadridPortrait of Lorenzo Lenzi (1527--1528) - Oil on panel, castello Sforzesco, MilanPietà (c. 1530) - Oil on panel, 105 x 100 cm, Uffizi, FlorenceAllegorical Portrait of Dante (c. 1530) - Oil on wood, 127 x 120 cm, National Gallery of Art, WashingtonPortrait of a Lady in Green (1530--1532) - Oil on panel, 76,7 x 65,4 cm, Royal Collection, WindsorHoly Family (1534--1540) - Oil on wood, 124.5 x 99.5 cm, Kunsthistorisches Museum, ViennaAdoration of the Shepherds (1535--1540) - Oil on wood, 65,3 x 46,7 cm, Museum of Fine Arts, BudapestPortrait of Ugolino Martelli (before 1537) - Oil on panel, 102 x 85 cm, Staatliche Museum, BerlinPortrait of Bartolomeo Panciatichi (c. 1540) - Tempera on wood, 104 x 84 cm, Uffizi, FlorenceHoly Family (c. 1540) - Oil on wood, 117 x 93 cm, Uffizi, FlorencePortrait of a Young Man (c. 1540) - Oil on wood, 96 x 75 cm, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New YorkVenus, Cupid, Folly and Time (Allegory; 1540--1545) - Oil on panel, 146 x 116 cm, National Gallery, LondonAdoration of the Bronze Snake (1540--1545) - Fresco, 320 x 385 cm, Palazzo Vecchio, FlorenceDeposition of Christ (1540--1545) - Oil on panel, 268 x 173 cm, Musée des Beaux- Arts, BesançonCrossing of the Red Sea (1541-1542) - Fresco, 320 x 490 cm, Palazzo Vecchio, FlorencePortrait of a Young Girl (1541--1545) - Oil on wood, 58 x 46,5 cm, Uffizi, FlorencePortrait of Bia de' Medici (c. 1542) - Tempera on panel, 63 x 48 cm, Uffizi, FlorencePortrait of Cosimo I de' Medici (1545) - Oil on panel, 74 x 58 cm, Uffizi, FlorencePortrait of Giovanni de' Medici as a Child (c. 1545) - Oil on wood, 58 x 46 cm, Uffizi, FlorencePortrait of Eleonora of Toledo (c. 1545) - Oil on panel, 115 x 96 cm, Uffizi, FlorencePortrait of Lucrezia Panciatichi (c. 1545) - Oil on panel, 101 x 82.8 cm, Uffizi, FlorenceChrist on the Cross (c. 1545) - Oil on panel, 145 x 115 cm, Musée des Beaux-Arts Jules Chéret, NicePortrait of Stefano Colonna (1546) - Oil on panel, 125 x 95 cm, Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica, RomePortrait of Don Garcia de' Medici (1550) - Oil on panel, Museo del Prado, MadridPortrait of a Lady (c. 1550) - Oil on wood, 109 x 85 cm, Galleria Sabauda, Turin
