In 1545, Bronzino painted a portrait of Cosimo I de' Medici, first duke of Tuscany, which is assumed to be a panel now in the Uffizi, Florence. Of the many contemporary copies and workshop products derived from that composition, the Museum's is only one showing in the background a fringed curtain and ornamental border, details which may have been taken from Francesco Salviati's Portrait of a Man (55.14).
