About the Work

The attribution of this portrait was long disputed. At first sight, there seems to be an inherent contradiction in a monumental Italian portrait that incorporates a small, finely detailed Netherlandish landscape. The ascription to the Netherlandish painter Pieter de Kempeneer offers a plausible explanation: trained in Brussels, de Kempeneer went to Italy, where he painted the Städel portrait, among other works. A few years later he continued on to Spain, where he was to become famous as Pedro Campaña.
