New volume in the Frick Diptych series focuses on an exquisite Renaissance portrait, pairing an essay by Frick curator Giulio Dalvit with a rich contribution from contemporary artist Elizabeth Peyton.

Various identities for the richly dressed, contemplative young man in this portrait have been proposed but none with any certainty. The mood of the subject and the diffused, gentle play of light over the broadly painted surfaces are strongly reminiscent of Titian's Venetian contemporary Giorgione. In many ways, the Frick portrait epitomizes a new tendency in Italian Renaissance portraiture in which the depiction is intended less as a description of the sitter than as an encounter with them.

A rich contribution by artist Elizabeth Peyton accompanies an illuminating essay by Giulio Dalvit which addresses the many questions of provenance, chronology, attribution and of who this mysterious young man might be.

Giulio Dalvit is assistant curator of sculpture, The Frick Collection, New York.Elizabeth Peyton is one of the preeminent portrait artists working today. Her work has been shown most recently in the exhibition Women Painting Women at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (2022).
