A Man holding an Armless Statuette
Italian, North

The unknown sitter, who holds an antique statuette, is probably a collector or connoisseur. The portrait was probably painted by a Genoese artist in the first part of the 17th century. The artist has paid particular attention to the way the light falls on the sculpture and to the white collar framing the sitter's face.
