The Death of Adonis is a 1512 Italian renaissance oil on canvas painting by Sebastiano del Piombo, now in the Uffizi in Florence. It was produced initially for Agostino Chigi just after the artist’s arrival in Rome, summoned to assist Chigi in decorating the Villa Chigi. A 1520 inventory of the villa stated it contained “figures of more nude and beautiful women.” The work arrived in Florence in 1587 and was held at the Palazzo Pitti.
