Sandro Botticelli: 'Portrait of a Young Man'
This crisp portrait of a young man stands out sharply against a black background. His brown tunic matches his eyes and he wears a red hat known as a 'beretta'.

Most portraits made in Florence and elsewhere in Italy were profile views. This one is unusual in its format, and the painting may have originally been larger.
