STROZZI, Bernardo
(b. 1581, Genova, d. 1644, Venezia)

Portrait of a Maltese Knight

c. 1640
Oil on canvas, 129 x 98 cm

This portrait belongs to Strozzi's mature Venetian years. The man portrayed here has yet to be identified and is distinguished solely by the large white octagonal cross on his robe, demonstrating that he is a member of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.
