Intro

To put its merit to perspective, it is safe to say that it ranks right up with the Louvre in Paris and The Metropolitan Museum in New York. It is the second most visited museum in Italy, second to the Vatican Museum in Rome and though majority of the works here are chiefly Italian Renaissance masterpieces, it also houses a commendable collection of classical sculptures.

Uffizi Gallery History

In 1560, Cosimo I de' Medici, the second Duke of Florence commissioned Giorgio Vasari, his favourite architect to design a building for administrative and judicial purposes , hence lending to the name “Uffizi” – Office. After his death in 1574, the new duke, Francis I, commissioned Bernardo Buontalenti to convert the top floor of the Uffizi into a repository for the art treasures amassed by the Medici family from the 13th century. Every member of the dynasty thus expanded the collection until the dynasty perished in 1743, after which the collection was left to the state of Tuscany. The Uffizi finally opened doors the public after repeated request in 1765 and exactly hundred years later in 1865, it was formally coined a museum.

Must-See at the Uffizi Gallery

“The Ognissanti Madonna" by Giotto

Hall 2 is dedicated to the 13th century Italian artist - Giotto di Bondone and houses one of his most important works the "Madonna Enthroned", also known as "Ognissanti Madonna". In this painting , Giotto has introduced Virgin Mary portrayed as a real woman with feminine form.

"Annunciation" by Leonardo Da Vinci

This masterpiece was realized between 1475 and 1480 by Leonardo da Vinci and reveals some of the typical traits of Leonardo’s earliest art, such as “reproducing” the nature inside his works. The elements of “science within art” oozing out of this painting makes it a remarkable piece.

"Venus of Urbino" by Titian

In Hall 83, you can admire this this painting rich in allegories commissioned by the Duke of Urbino in 1538. The essence is derived from the Sleeping Venus, painted in 1510 by Giorgione and the incredible use of lights and colors by Titian reflects the sensuality of Venus’ naked body.

"Birth of Venus" by Botticelli

A masterpiece by the Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli, the "Birth of Venus" was realized between 1482 and 1485 and has become a landmark of 15th century Italian art, rich in allegorical references to classic literature. It is said that the "Birth of Venus" is an ode to the Medici, the wealthy Florentine family who commissioned the work.

"Doni Tondo" by Michelangelo

The “Doni Tondo” is a XVI century Italian art and the only painting on panel by Michelangelo Buonarroti in the Uffizi Gallery. This round painting (“tondo” in Italian means round) is characterized by unnatural poses of the Mary, Joseph and Jesus with shimmery colors giving it a unique touch.
