Bronzino: Artist and Poet at the Court of the Medici (2010 – 2011)
As the preferred painter of Cosimo I de’ Medici, Agnolo di Cosimo (better known as Bronzino), portrayed an inimitable era like no one else could have.
For the exhibition ‘Bronzino: Artist and Poet at the Court of the Medici’ (September 2010 – January 2011), Il Bisonte pays tribute to the extraordinary elegance of the Medici court along with the aristocratic splendor of Bronzino’s portraits.
The shoulder bag is made of red cowhide with a floral print complemented by leather inserts in white and bronze. The precious Renaissance-inspired motifs imitate the pattern of the bodice worn by Eleonora di Toledo for her famous portrait done by Bronzino in 1545.
