Acquired by the Museum as a work of a 16th- century Venetian master from the circle of Bassano.

The portrait composition used in this picture can be traced back to Titian. This type of portrait was then developed further in the work of Jacopo Tintoretto and became widespread in Venice in the last third of the 16th-century. Jacopo's son, Domenico Tintoretto, collaborated regularly with his father and, in the many portraits he painted, carried on the traditions of his father.
