On loan from York Museums Trust (York Art Gallery). Presented by F.D. Green through The Art Fund, 1955, © York Museums Trust

This man’s intense facial expression displays Parmigianino’s extraordinary talent in capturing the character and psychological state of his sitters. The precious book, beringed right hand, valuable oriental carpet and expensive golden border of the hanging in the background distinguish him as a man of wealth and good taste.

The painting is on loan from York Art Gallery which will reopen in 2015 with new display spaces and the Centre for British Studio Ceramics. To find out more visit the York Art Gallery website [External link].
