A seated, haf-length portait of Italian Mannerist artist Parmigianino (Francesco Mazzuoli, 1504 - 1540), with one of his works partially visible on right. This portrait was part of A. F. Goriís monumental Museum Florentium, which set out to engrave all the portraits of painters, architects, sculptors and patrons of the arts in the major galleries of Florence. This vast undertaking was issued in individual parts as it took over thirty years (1731-1766) to complete. The bulk of the engraving fell to four of Florenceís most rennowned artists, Giovanni Domenico Campiglia, Pietro Pazzi, Cosimo Mogalli and Lorenzini.
