Bronzino's Portrait of Lorenzo Lenzi

Painted 1527-28. Such a striking image! It's the juxtaposition of the young boy's face and the man's buffalo-stance body; the black clothes and the green backdrop, the way he has a book open but is not looking at the book. There's such uncertainty in the lad's eyes; the child in all of us peeping out through the trappings of adulthood and learning.
