This charming portrait, with a strong presence and in good condition, remains mysterious as to its sitter and to its author.

The technique and the realistic treatment of the flesh clearly evoke the works of Northern Italian artists, especially Giacomo Ceruti, known as Il Pitocheto.

____________________________________________

Le beau portrait, à la présence forte et dans un bel état de conservation, reste mystérieux quant à son modèle et à son exécutant.

La technique et le réalisme dans le traitement des chairs évoquent nettement les œuvres d’artistes italiens du nord de la Péninsule, en particulier l’art de Giacomo Ceruti, dit Il Pitocheto.
