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, Mannerist🎨s 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.
