The Annigoni Museum

The Museo Pietro Annigoni inside Villa Bardini is devoted to the eclectic artist who, in Florence in the creatively thriving period between the two world wars, experimented and expressed his creativity through drawing, design, painting, etching, fresco and medal making.

The collection is comprised of a large family collection, including numerous documents that trace the active career of Pietro Annigoni. His style is characterized by a strict adherence to realism and the use of ancient Renaissance painting techniques. In fact, his ability as a portrait artist earned him the name “Painter of Queens”, including a famous depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Other famed works included portraits of English royalty, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Pope Giovanni XXIII.
