Portrait of a Man in a Red Cap

c. 1516
Oil on canvas, 82 x 71 cm
Frick Collection, New York

The identity of the richly dressed young man in this portrait is not known. Formerly the painting was attributed to Giorgione. It is interesting to point out that the portrait closely resembles the central figure of The Concert, a painting that also has been ascribed both to Titian and to Giorgione.
