The youthful sitter has not been identified.The dress suggests a date in the mid-1540s and is plainly that of a wealthy family; the full-length format also suggests an aristocratic sitter.
This portrait was formerly attributed to Pontormo, Bronzino and Francesco Salviati. The fashionable costume accords best with a date in the mid-1540s.
