Portrait of Bartolomeo Panciatichi (detail).
g Ca. 1540
b 104 x 84 cm
c Tempera on wood.
Official portraitist at the Medici court of Cosimo I, Bronzino paintedportraits of members of Florentine aristocracy. In this picture Panciatichi is around thirty years old, austere and proud, sitting before his family palace, whose coat of arm appears on the right. Here the influence of Parmigianino may be obvious, in the elongated figure and the vigorous line which creates broken surfaces on the sleeves of Bartolomeo Panciatichi. The imposing, idealized structure behind the portrait refers to fifteenth-century styles, while the lucid surfaces of colour define once again all the ideal and intellectual splendour of this man of the court: a work, therefore, totally in keeping with the taste and mentality of the Florentine painter.
Style: Florentine Mannerist.
