Oil on canvas portrait, likely 18th century, after a 16th-century Old Master painting traditionally attributed to Domenico Caprioli (Italian,1494-1528) in the collection of the Hermitage Museum. The subject, a young man with long brown hair, wearing a cap and clothed in fine red and gold garments, stands looking over his left shoulder and holding a book, with a view of a church, Corinthian columns and marble nude sculpture in the background. Unframed. Stamp en verso for conservator Hiram H. Hoelzer (New York). One stretcher additionally stamped "New York". 43 1/4" H x 33 3/4" W. Note: recent scholarship has raised uncertainty about the identity of the artist (and the subject) of what was once referred to as "Self Portrait of the Artist, 1512, by Domenico Caprioli." For a further discussion, see the article "Dominicus Who? Solving the Riddle Posed by a Splendid "Venetian" Portrait dated 1512 at the State Hermitage Museum" by Giovanna Perini Folesani http://actual-art.org/files/sb/07/Perini_Folesani.pdf . The Estate of Cora Jane Spiller, Bowling Green, Kentucky. Condition: Relined with small tear to canvas to subject's right shoulder, some light minor scratching and a couple of errant drips. Minor scattered losses to perimeter of canvas. Unframed.
