The Marquis del Grillo
Antonio Mancini

The Marquis Giorgio Capranica del Grillo (1849 -1922) was for many years a gentleman of the Court of Queen Margherita of Italy, the Queen Mother. His mother was Adelaide Ristori, the actress.

The portrait was painted in Rome in 1889 but apparently post-dated 1899 in 1904.
