Portrait of Eleanor of Toledo was borrowed to New York

The National Gallery’s most beautiful lady is in New York! A celebrated artwork of the renaissance painter Agnolo Bronzino (1506⁠–⁠1572) picturing the pretty Eleanor of Toledo (who was married to Cosimo I. de’ Medici) that belongs among the gems of the Old Masters exhibition, unfortunately can not be found in the NGP nowadays.

Until October 2021, the painting is borrowed by the Metropolitain museum of art in New York for the exhibition The Medici. Portraits and Politics 1512⁠–⁠1570, which presents portraints of the famous Florentine Medici family made by important renaiisance painters. Yet, you should not miss the exhibition in Schwarzenberg palace; Eleanor of Toledo even has a stand-in there.
