Today’s Favorite Painting

Agnolo Bronzino

Portrait of Andrea Doria as Neptune

ca. 1532-33

oil on canvas

Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan

This image of the aging condottiere Andrea Doria ( 1466-1560) gives this  particular aging old fool inspiration. Although Renaissance Italians  clearly worshipped youth, the majesty of this fully mature man is apparent. 

Off to Gold’s.

Take care,

Babylon Baroque
