PAINTINGS CENT. XVI
This route starts from the Hall of Colossus, which exhibits masterpieces of the Florentine masters working in the first decades of the century, to continue along the walls of the Prisoners Gallery. Here the tablets by Fra' Bartolomeo depicting the Job and Isaiah Prophets open the paint dialogue with contemporary Michelangelo's sculpture, then developed by the works of other important artists such as Andrea del Sarto, Pontormo whose famous tablet with Venus and Cupid, made on cardboard by Michelangelo himself is on display.
In the Tribune, on the sides of the Michelangelo's David, stand out large altarpieces that show the development of the Florentine painting of the period, characterized by the strong influence of Michelangelo's models and show their development, which is directed towards the new spirituality of the Counter-Reformation.
