The Portrait of a Man can perhaps best be compared to Pourbus's Portrait of Abraham Grapheus in the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco (acquisition no. 1957.159). The size and informality of the present work create a sense of intimacy and suggest that this may be a portrait of someone close to Pourbus.
We are very grateful to Koenraad Jonckheere for his attribution of the present work (on the basis of digital images) and for his assistance in preparing this note.
