Portrait of a Young Man in Red

size(cm): 35x25
Sale price£95 GBP


An unknown man, calm and content, stands proud against a prosperous landscape that may include a portrait of his own residence. Fine but sober clothing, direct gaze, and proud bearing characterize the new Renaissance emphasis on individualism.

The three-quarter turn of the body, with his arm forming the base of the triangular composition, became a popular pose at the time; not coincidentally, it draws attention to the man's ring and the fine Middle Eastern rug that covers the table.
