About this artwork

This work, which has suffered considerable damage and restoration, was attributed to Giorgione at the time of its acquisition. Most scholars now consider it to be the work of a close follower. It may be identical with a portrait attributed to Giorgione of a young man with his hand reflected in his armour described in 1648 by the Venetian writer on art Carlo Ridolfi.
