Abstract :
Portrait of Eleonora of Toledo and Her Son Giovanni, ca.1545 (Detroit Institute of Arts), attributed to Bronzino, was recently cleaned and consolidated. Nearly identical to a portrait by Bronzino in the Uffizi, Florence, the Detroit portrait had long been judged by scholars to be a replica, a copy by the artist. Material, compositional, technical and qualitative evidence collected during treatment supported identification of the Detroit portrait as a contemporary copy of the Uffizi painting, as a product of Bronzino and his workshop. Art historical research established replication to be a part of Bronzino's practice. ;
