Title: Portrait of Bindo Altoviti
Description:
Raphael Sanzio (Italian: Raffaello) (1483 - 1520)
Portrait of Bindo Altoviti
Oil on wood, 1512-1515
60 cm × 44 cm (24 in × 17 in)
National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., USA

The Portrait of Bindo Altoviti is a painting finished around 1515 by the Italian High Renaissance painter Raphael. It is housed in the National Gallery of Art of Washington, D.C., United States.

Bindo Altoviti was a rich banker born in Rome in 1491, but of Florentine origin. He was a cultured man who loved the arts.

The graceful, almost effeminate position of the subject along with the heavy contrast between light and shadow are atypical of Raphael's work, particularly of his portraits of men, demonstrating the artist's experimentation with different styles and forms in his later Roman period. The influence of the works of Leonardo, which Raphael studied astutely during this period of his career, are strikingly evident in this particular piece.

The painting was a property of Altovitis descendants until 1808, when it was sold to Ludwig I of Bavaria. It remained at the Alte Pinakothek until 1936, when, after many debates about its attribution, the painting was lured out of Nazi Germany by "canny English dealers". Acquired by Samuel Kress, the portrait subsequently became property of the National Gallery of Art in Washington.
