In the month of April, 1628, the two brothers, Domenico and Valore Casini, consigned five portraits of personages belonging to the Medici family to the Guardaroba, for placement in a hall in the Pitti Palace. The portrait of Clement VII (Giulio de' Medici, natural son of Giuliano, the brother of Lorenzo the Magnificent) belongs to this series.
