The portrait depicts a young man, probably a soldier and connoisseur. He handles his sword and points to a bronze statuette, possibly after Michelangelo. There is some debate as to whether this painting should be attributed to the Bolognese artist Bartolomeo Passarotti or his son Tiburzio. The young man depicted may be a portrait of the younger artist by his father. Whether or not this is the case, the portrait bears a striking similarity to other works attributed to Bartolomeo Passarroti.
