"A Young Woman and Her Little Boy" by Bronzino

Located in the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., this portrait depicts an unknown woman of the Medici court with a young boy tucked under her arm. Her rigid pose and facial features are typical of the artist’s style. Bronzino was the court painter for the Medici family. X-rays revealed that the child was added later, and that the woman’s dress was altered to appear more regal.
