Lot Notes
This early Netherlandish portrait follows a traditionestablished by Jan van Eyck, in which the sitter is presented closeto the picture plane, with his hands resting on the fictive ledgecreated by the frame. The artist has painstakingly rendered eachwrinkle of his face and every fold and crease surrounding hismasterfully-rendered eyes. He is dressed according to the fashionof the time in a white shirt, fur-lined doublet open at the neckand a robe trimmed with lynx fur, identifying him as a prosperousindividual. He holds a strand of rosary beads carved from coral, amaterial believed to have apotropaic properties. Reflecting theheightened importance of the cult of the Virgin, the use ofrosaries had become increasingly widespread in the last quarter ofthe fifteenth century; here, the sitter is shown in the act ofhandling a Paternoster bead to facilitate his prayer. Moreover, thesitter's orientation toward his right suggests that this panel mayhave originally formed part of a devotional dyptich and was mostlikely paired with a representation of the Virgin and Child. If hewas married, the sitter's wife may have also been included in athird panel, thus creating a triptych. The portrait appears to havebeen slightly cut down on the left side at some point and thegentleman's hat may have been extended slightly to his left torestore balance to the composition. Born in Estonia, Michel Sittow became an itinerant court painterspecializing in portraiture and small devotional paintings. By1483, he had moved to Bruges to become an apprentice, possibly inthe workshop of Hans Memling or an artist close to him. Nearly adecade later, in 1492, Sittow is recorded working in Spain, in theservice of Queen Isabella of Castile and León. Upon her death in1504, he may have worked for her son-in-law, Philip of Austria, thefuture King of Castile, and the following year he may have eventraveled to England, as evidenced by his portraits of Henry VIII(London, National Portrait Gallery) and of a woman who has beententatively identified as Catherine of Aragon (Vienna,Kunsthistorisches Museum). After traveling to Denmark and brieflyreturning to Spain, Sittow returned to Reval, where he spent theremainder of his career. While precious few portraits by Michel Sittow survive, similaritiesto the present work may be found in several of his paintings. ThePortrait of Diego de Guevara (Washington, D.C., National Gallery ofArt) of circa 1515/18, which was also conceived as a devotionaldiptych, is imbued with the same sober, dignified atmosphere. Inboth paintings, one observes a comparable wispy treatment of thehair, thin downturned mouth and dedication to accurately capturingthe effects of time on the face. The Portrait of a Man (The Hague,Mauritshuis) of circa 1520, which has also been linked to Sittow,is also very close to the present painting, particularly in termsof costume details and the treatment of the sitter's hands andphysiognomy.
