Have you seen this man? A little help from the field.

"Portrait of a Man"

“Portrait of a Man”

Around ten years ago I bought this small [ 9″x 11″] painting (probably watercolor and gouache) at a garage sale.   My guess is  this man is to be found staring out at us from the background of a late 15th/early 16th century fresco (Perugino?  Pinturrichio? Raphael?).   I’d appreciate it if friends in the field would forward this image/post to anyone who might be able to help in identifying the original source for this image.  My photograph is yellower than the original–blame the photographer not the camera–as the image is behind glass and firmly nailed into a frame which would need to be destroyed in order to get to the actual image.

  1. It’s Perugino, from the Prophets and Sibyls in the Cambio. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pietro_Perugino_024.jpg

    How nice to have a watercolor copy from a garage sale!
