This painting is a relatively youthful work that reveals both the sobriety and energy of the Venetian 16th century school of portraiture. Bassetti’s portraits focus attention almost exclusively on the faces of his sitters and generally represent elderly persons absorbed in silent contemplation, by now alone with themselves and preoccupied by thoughts of approaching death.
