Portrait of a Man
Augsburg, Unknown artist

The format of this portrait – the three-quarter bust-length view, the inclusion of the hands and the plain background are typical of German portraiture of the sixteenth-century. But the painting is in poor condition and has been overpainted extensively. The identities of the sitter and artist are unknown but it was probably made in Augsburg or another southern German city.
