The Gonzaga Family Worshipping the Holy Trinity (detail)

Oil on canvas
Palazzo Ducale, Mantua

On the left side of the painting we can recognize Vincenzo I, in the same white mantel he wore during his coronation, and Guglielmo, portrayed posthumously, and somewhat paradoxically, as roughly the same age as his son. The original composition had the portraits of Vincenzo's three sons behind him.
