Pier Francesco di Jacopo Foschi
Portrait of a Young Man. Mid-XVI century

Traditionally this work was thought to be one by Francesco de' Rossi, known as Salviati; A.Pinelli attributed it to Fosca. It belongs to the late period of the artist's work. The Portrait of a Youth from the Carrara Academy in Bergamo, which, at one time, was considered to be a depiction of Baccio Bandinelli, provides a close parallel. It is possible that the same face has been painted in the Pushkin Museum portrait.
