Arts Everyday Living: Inside a Florentine Palace—Across the Centuries Through Art

Agnolo Bronzino, Portrait of a Lady with Lapdog, c. 1537-1540, Stadel Museum, Frankfurt, Germany

Every dog is a lion at home.*

Henry George Bohn

The work of Italian Florentine artist Agnolo Bronzino (1503-1572) is distinguished by the Mannerist style, that emphasized elongation of the features of his often aristocratic sitters. British publisher Henry George Bohn (1792-1884) was instrumental in popularizing studies in variety of subjects, from history to science to theology.
