The sitter of this bust-length portrait has been identified as Paolo Tiepolo (1523-1585), a diplomat and senator, one of the most powerful and influential figures in sixteenth-century Venetian politics.

The painting is a copy by Domenico of a portrait executed in 1570 by his father Jacopo Tintoretto.
