Agnolo di Cosimo, 1503-1572), was an Italian Mannerist
painter from Florence
. Best known Agnolo Bronzino paintings comprise the portrait series of the duke and duchess. Many of Bronzino's art are still in Florence but other works can be found in the National Gallery, London. Bronzino's oil painting tends to include sophisticated references to earlier painters, in which almost every one of the extraordinarily contorted poses can be traced back to Raphael
or to Michelangelo
