Title: Portrait of a Man
Description:

Antonello da Messina (c. 1430 – February 1479)
Portrait of a Man
1460s
Tempera of wood
27 cm × 20 cm (11 in × 7.9 in)
Museo Civico Malaspina, Pavia, Italy


The picture, in the Town Museum of Pavia (Lombardy) is signed according to the Flemish habit, by directly engraving the painter's name on the parapet in the lower foreground (instead of using a false glued panel), like the Madrid portrait. Despite the sign, the strict nearness to the Flemish portrait art and the poor state of preservation have pushed some scholars to doubt about the attribution to Antonello.

The work has been dated to the 1460s basing on the fashion of the subject's dress and headgear.
