Original description by The Metropolitan Museum of Art (© Copyright - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

El Greco’s candid portraits have been consistently admired for their naturalism and psychological insight, even when (as in the eighteenth century) his other works fell out of favor.This portrait of about 1595–1600 has been alternately accepted and rejected as a searching self-portrait. Although there is no documented portrait of the artist, he seems to have cast himself in supporting roles within some of his pictures and these bear some resemblance to the present sitter.
