The identity of this reserved sitter, who seems warily to assess us with a sidelong glance, is unknown and the attribution to Velázquez has been much disputed. A reconsideration based on a detailed technical examination suggests that it may have been painted in Rome by Velázquez at the same time as the portrait of the artist’s enslaved assistant, Juan de Pareja. In Rome, Velázquez portrayed people of various ranks and professions, ranging from the pope and cardinals to the pope’s barber and people such as Juan de Córdoba, who aided Velázquez in the purchase of works of art for the Spanish royal collection.
