The reproduced sculpture is part of the sculptural ensemble of the tomb of Giuliano de’ Medici, located in the Basilica of San Lorenzo in Florence. This work was created by Michelangelo Buonarroti between 1526 and 1534.
Giuliano de’ Medici (1453 – 1478) was a prominent member of the influential Florentine Medici family, major patrons of philosophy and art during the Italian Renaissance. Alongside his brother Lorenzo the Magnificent, and following in the footsteps of their father Cosimo, they sponsored renowned artists of the time, such as Sandro Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, and Michelangelo Buonarroti.
The Medici family served as regents of the city-state of Florence during the Quattrocento. The patriarch, Cosimo, a shrewd banker and statesman, laid the foundations for the Medici fortune and power, while Lorenzo stood out as a charismatic leader and art lover. Giuliano’s life was cut short in 1478 when he was assassinated during the Pazzi Conspiracy. Despite his brief life, Giuliano de’ Medici left a lasting cultural legacy, contributing to the splendor of the Renaissance Florence.
