Title: Portrait of a Young Man
Description:

Antonello da Messina (c. 1430 – February 1479)
Portrait of a Young Man
c. 1478
Panel
20.4 cm × 14.5 cm (8.0 in × 5.7 in)
Gemäldegalerie, Berlin, Germany


This work was signed by Antonello, and has been considered his very last work if the date on it is interpreted as 1478. It is therefore his last male portrait, and it housed in the Staatliche Museen (Gemäldegalerie) of Berlin, Germany.

Relevant is the insertion by Antonello of a landscape in the background, as other artists (including Giovanni Bellini) used this innovative feature only starting from the 1490s. The picture shows influences from the late Flemish paintings, as can be seen from the rendering of the dress, similar to a Van Eyck portrait now at Sibiu.
