Portrait of a Gentleman


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This portrait of an unidentified man, probably executed in Rome, appears to have originally extended further at the lower edge. The object partially visible at the lower edge is probably a pair of gloves, often depicted in the hand of a gentleman as a sign that he does not do manual work. His Vandyke beard, so named after the famous Flemish portrait painter Sir Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641), was popular among gentlemen during the 17th century. For more information on this painting, please see Federico Zeri's 1976 catalogue no. 3210, p. 449.
