Johann Joseph Zoffany, ‘The Tribuna of the Uffizi’, 1777, Royal Collection Trust

In the summer of 1772 Zoffany set off for Florence with £300, letters of introduction and a commission from the Queen to paint highlights of the Grand Duke of Tuscany's collection shown within the Tribuna of the Uffizi Palace. The inspiration for the commission could have been the Cabinet of Paintings then attributed to Gonzales Coques, which hung in Queen Charlotte's work-room at Kew.

Commissioned by Queen Charlotte
