Catalogue Note

Although the identity of the sitter remains elusive, he is clearly a prominent figure as suggested by his intricately decorated shirt with a high ruffled neck. These ruffs on the neck became very much in vogue during the 16th century, and were used by the monarchs and the nobility.  Meanwhile the gems and jewels that decorate his beret, matching those that act as buttons for his shirt, reaffirm the importance of this stylish sitter.
