About this artwork

This painting provides a revealing glimpse into the workshop practice of Agnolo Bronzino. Three examples of the composition are known; an original version and two copies, including this one. All are unfinished. This version and the other copy follow a cartoon, or pattern drawing, based on the original work, and may be from a later date. It is unclear why these replicas were begun and then abandoned.
