Portrait of a Young Man

The costume of the sitter suggests the approximate dating of this picture. Basaiti produced several impressive altarpieces for Venice, and was a far more famous artist at the end of the last century than he is today. Giovanni Bellini's 'Madonna of the Meadow' was once attributed to him.
