The Cinquecento in Florence: From Michelangelo and Pontormo to Giambologna (2017 – 2018)

A cowhide cross body bag in shades of blue and pink, which are identical to the colors of Mary’s veil and dress in Pontormo’s “Visitazione” (1514-16), guides visitors as they discover the great masters of color gathered in the exhibition, ‘The Cinquecento in Florence: From Michelangelo and Pontormo to Giambologna’ (September 2017 – January 2018).

The works of Michelangelo, Bronzino, Giorgio Vasari, Rosso Fiorentino, and Pontormo, celebrate the exceptional intellectual and artistic talents that lived and worked in Florence under the brilliant patronage of Francesco I de Medici.
