Romanino’s style was influenced by Giorgione and Dürer. In this early work, the sitter wears a wide-brimmed hat over a gold-decorated cap, worn by soldiers in the early sixteenth century to keep their shoulder-length hair out of the way. The sitter here is probably a north Italian nobleman rather than a professional soldier.
