Portrait of a Man

Oil on oak panel, 32 x 22,8 cm
Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

The man, who is of middle age, has not been identified. The fashion in which his hair is cut corresponds roughly to the style worn by Francesco d'Este (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), which would suggest that the two pictures are close in date.
