Domenico Ghirlandaio: 'Portrait of a Young Man in Red'
The painting, which is in exceptionally good condition, probably dates from the 1480s. By then the three-quarter view had replaced the profile as the most popular type of portrait in Florentine painting.

This development, and still more the use of landscape background behind the head, was influenced by Netherlandish portraiture, especially that by Hans Memling.
