Portrait of a Young Man

Tintoretto (Jacopo Robusti)

This painting, with its chequered history of attributions, can be dated c. 1565 thanks to a comparison with the Portrait of an Old Man and a Boy in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, the two works sharing a similar modelling of the young man’s face with its very marked features. The attire is aristocratic and the pose characteristically “scornful” – self-assured, haughty and detached – in keeping with a style invented by Titian and subsequently adopted in numerous 16th century Venetian portraits.
