Catalogue Note

The young sitter is identified in the inscription as Carlo de Simiane, Principe di Montafia and Marchese di Pianezza and Livorno.  While one Carlo de Simiane of a similar title was born in 1608 and died in 1677, this portrait more likely depicts his son of the same name, born in 1634.  The inscription states that the boy was seven and a half years old at the time of the sitting which would therefore date this painting to circa 1641.  The long "love lock" worn in the child's hair and his square toed, sagging boots would be in keeping with fashions of that date.
