Portrait of a Man

Pitocchetto (Giacomo Ceruti)

This painting highlights Ceruti’s skill also in the field of portraiture. While his final years in Milan were characterised by a gallery of aristocratic figures, this picture with its sophisticated colour combination of green and white depicts a man of modest aspect who holds our gaze with his amiable air, thus creating instant empathy. We are left with no choice but to feel warmth towards all of the figures in Ceruti’s work.
