BAROCCI, Federico Fiori

Portrait of a Gentleman

Oil on canvas, 64 x 49 cm
Private collection

The painting represents a portrait of an unidentified gentleman, bust length, wearing a black jerkin and white ruff. The physiognomy is well understood and the gradation of colour, shifting gently in pastel-like tones, is entirely typical of the artist.
