Portrait of a Man with a Pink

Hans Memling1475

The Morgan Library & Museum

The Morgan Library & Museum

This is one of the finest paintings in the Morgan collection. The sitter may have been a member of the Italian merchant colony in Bruges, where Memling was the leading painter. The pink, or carnation, in the young man's hand is likely a symbol of betrothal, suggesting that the painting may be one of a pair of wedding portraits.
