The Portrait of Bia de' Medici is an oil-tempera on wood painting by Agnolo Bronzino, dating to around 1542 and now in the Uffizi in Florence. For a long time it was displayed in the Tribuna at the heart of the museum, but since 2012 it has been moved to the 'sale rosse' of the Nuovi Uffizi.

In the late 19th century, this painting was already identified as a portrait of the “natural daughter of the Duke”, Cosimo, born before his marriage in 1539: the little Bianca, known as Bia.


The tag on back gives the artist's name, Agnolo Bronzino and his age, and below that "Isabella de Medici", which is incorrect. The painting is of "Bia" (Bianca). She was born 1536 and died March 1, 1542 due to a fever. The painting was done postmortem.  Isabella was a sister as yet unborn at the time of Bia's death. (source wikipedia).

Thanks for the responses, does anyone know how to tell if it’s a painting or a print? It seems to be stuck onto hardboard and quite fragile so I don’t want to pull it off. 

Thanks in advance 

It's a mid-20th century print mounted on masonite. If you look really closely you might be able to see little pixel dots of color.
