(b. 1494, Pontormo, d. 1557, Firenze)
Lunette fresco (detail)1519-21
Villa Medici, Poggio a Caiano
The detail shows the left side of the lunette with the figure of Liber, the Roman god of fertility. Below are the personifications of Winter and Autumn. Between them, the skinny dog with a grumpy expression, almost ready to bark, is one of the most unusual and bizarre details of the fresco.
