Artwork

Portrait of a gentleman was created around 1630. It is not sure if the person portrayed is General Alessandro del Borro. The piece measures 121 x 203 cm (width x height).

Brief description

We see the impressive, popular figure of a man. He’s standing lateral, slightly elevated by a step next to a stone pillar. He’s looking down at the observer over his right shoulder. His glance is distanced and proud. His face is dominated by his double chin, round cheeks and his thick red-brown hair. No less impressive is the black brocade fabric, lavishly wrapped around him like a frock coat. He is carrying a sword on his left.

Genre & Material

This piece is a Baroque-painting. It was painted in oil on a canvas.
