Jan van Scorel left Utrecht in 1518 and traveled through Germany and Austria, made a pilgrimage to the Holy Lands, and sojourned in Rome, where he became the curator of the collection of antiquities in the Belvedere under the Dutch Pope Adrian VI. Stylistically his diptych Virgin and Child and Portrait of a Man is indebted to his experience in Italy.
