Notes

Summary:
This beautiful painting includes a double portrait, revealing a certain link between the unknown young man and the Medici family. The medal he keeps in his hands shows in fact Cosimo the Elder in profile: it is a gilt plaster mould glued on the wood, it is derived from a gold posthumously medal coined between 1465 and 1469 in honour of Cosimo de' Medici. The portrait is an early work by Botticelli; he set the man in the open against a fascinating desolate landscape recalling Flemish paintings.
