Portrait of a Knight

c. 1640
Oil on canvas, 277 x 147 cm
Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice

The confident pose, authoritative air, the toga with the golden stole of an imperial knight, and the honorific bulls in full view on the table exalt the social status of this Venetian nobleman, probably Giovanni Grimani.
