Bronzino, Venus, Cupid, Folly, and Time, c. 1545 Oil on panel, 5 ft 1 in x 4 ft 8 3/4 in (London, National Gallery of Art)
Around 1545, Agnolo Tori, called Bronzino (1503-72), painted a complex verbal allegory usually referred to as Venus, Cupid, Folly, and Time. It displays the ambivalence of the Mannerist period in life and art. It also illustrates the Mannerist taste for obscure imagery with erotic overtones. Da Vinci's Code
