Portrait of Agostino Barbarigo

Oil on canvas, 60 x 48 cm
Szépművészeti Múzeum, Budapest

Agostino Barbarigo, the famous commander of Venice, fell in the battle against the Turks at Lepanto in 1571. There is a larger painting in the Cleveland Museum showing Barbarigo in a similar representation. It is believed now that the picture in Budapest is a study to the larger painting in Cleveland.
