“The next room, the Jupiter room, has paintings by Rubens, Andrea del Sarto, Bronzino, Perugino and the Flemish Sustermans, official painter at the Medici court. Susterman’s portrait of Galileo Galilei, the official mathematician at the Medici Grand Ducal court dedicated all of his astronomical discoveries to the Medici.” (The Palatine Gallery at the Pitti Palace, Visit Florence)
