Elizabeth Pilliod, ''Pontormo, Bronzino, and Allori: A Genealogy of Florentine Art'' (New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 2001). Pontormo exercised a dominant influence on Bronzino's developing style (Painting style), and the two were to remain collaborators for most of the former's life. An early example of Bronzino's hand has often been detected in the Capponi Chapel in the church of Santa Felicita by the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Pontormo designed the interior and executed the altarpiece, the masterly Deposition from the Cross (The Deposition from the Cross (Pontormo)) and the sidewall fresco ''Annunciation (Annunciation (Pontormo))''. Bronzino apparently was assigned the frescoes on the dome, which however have not survived. Of the four empanelled ''tondi'' or roundels depicting each of the evangelists (Evangelism), two were said by Vasari to have been painted by Bronzino. His style however is so similar to his master's that scholars still debate the specific attributions.

Visiting Italy, including, Florence, Venice, Padua, Genoa, Vicenza, Rome, Naples, and Sicily then on to Greece, visiting Corinth, Athens, Delphi, Thebes (Thebes, Greece) and Olympia (Olympia, Greece).He wrote from Athens to his father: How can I by description give you any idea of the great pleasure I enjoyed in the sight of these ancient buildings of Athens! How strongly were exemplified in them the grandeur and effect of simplicity in architecture! The Temple of Thesus (Temple of Hephaestus)... cannot but arrest the attention of everyone from its appropriate and dignified solemnity of appearance. The temple of Minerva (Parthenon)... strikes one in the same way with its grandeur and majesty. We were a month there. The impression made upon my mind... had not in that time in the least weakened by being frequently repeated and I could with pleasure spend a much longer time there, while those in Rome (with few exceptions) not only soon grow in some degree uninteresting but have now entirely sunk into disregard and contempt in my mind. All that I could do in Athens was to make some views of them...hoping that they will serve as a memorandum to me of what I think should always be a model.' pages 52-53, J.
