Repository work id number: 78.1996

Title type: repository

Attribution qualifier:

Classification:

Culture: Italian

Descriptive note: In this magnificent portrait of his principal patron - a work that exists in many replicas and copies - the painter displays a perfectionism it is hard not to think obsessive. Riven with reflections, highlights and shadows, Cosimo's armour alone is an article of transfixing interest.
