Portrait of a Young Gentleman

1517 - 1520. Oil on panel. Room 055B

As this painting shows, the German portrait style survived in Antwerp well into the sixteenth century: the sitter is shown half-length against a brightly-coloured background. In his left hand he holds a ring, a standard attribute in wedding portraits. The female companion piece has not been identified.
