An interesting example of a 16th century portrait. Imperfections in the technique of depicting a person are clearly noticeable, the written image is still far from realistic, almost photographic, later examples. The depicted figure is disproportionate, but the face of the hero is written quite accurately and naturally. Perhaps, for that time, the face is depicted even very well, its relief is natural, detailed. The author drew a light stubble, barely noticeable lip contour, slightly lowered eyelids. [Expand]

this man has a strange look, as if he did not get enough sleep or drank alcohol. He looks somewhere in the void, expresses strange and incomprehensible emotions
