Description:

Jan van Eyck (about 1395-1441)
Marco Barbarigo
Oil on oak, about 1449
24.1 x 15.9 cm
National Gallery, London, UK


Inscribed on the letter: Spetabilj et Egregio D[omin]o / Marcho barbaricho q[uon]da[m] Spe / tabillis d[omi]nj franzisy p[ro] / churatoris S[an]ti marzj / dd (To the most worthy and distinguished lord Marco Barbarigo, son of the late worthy lord Francesco, Procurator of San Marco) and lower down: Londonis (in London); in the bottom corners what appears to be 'f' and 'n'(?).

The subject prominently displays a letter addressed to Marco Barbarigo (1414­86). Marco, son of Francesco Barbarigo, Procurator of San Marco (who died in August 1448), was in London from about 1445 and in February 1449 was Venetian consul in England.

The portrait was probably painted during the sitter's stay in London, possibly by a follower of van Eyck settled in London.

Seen in Venice by the dealer Sasso, 1791; Manfrin collection, Venice; bought, 1862.
