This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Agnolo Allori, better known as Bronzino, was the uncle of Allessandro Allori.  He was born in Monticelli in 1503.  He first studied under Raffaellino del Garbo and was just twenty when he joined forces with a fellow Mannerist painter Jacopo da Pontormo.   

Bronzino was the leading court painter of the Florentine School in the middle of the sixteenth century. By the time he was appointed court painter to Cosimo I in 1539, Bronzino's style had already taken on the intellectual abstractness for which he is so famous, especially as a portrait painter.  His personal style was completely suited to the court atmosphere of outward elegance and inner repression.  He combined Botticelli's lyric line and Michelangelo's monumentality, but without the idealism of either artist.  His patrician subjects were fixed as if in enamel and illuminated with unnatural sharpness.  Bronzino was also an accomplished poet as well as a painter.  He died in 1572.    S
