Agnolo Bronzino | Descent of Christ into Limbo, 1552




Agnolo Bronzino of Florence, Italy, known as Il Bronzino, was a Mannerist painter. Mixing styles of the late High Renaissance into the early Baroque period, Mannerists often depicted their subjects in unnatural forms. Bronzino’s works have been described as “icy” portraits that put an abyss between the subject and the viewer.
