Portrait of a Young Man  1778

by Biagio d'Antonio

This is Biagio d'Antonio's most distinguished portrait, and was painted in around 1470. Its sculptural quality is indebted to the sculptor and painter Verrocchio, who had a deep influence on artists of Biagio's generation. In the background Biagio shows the valley of the Arno river with the city walls and cathedral of Florence. (Source: [url=https://www.metmuseum.org/art/c...
