The sitter is probably Fortunato Martinengo , a scholarly nobleman of Brescia. The painting may date from 1542 when he married.

Rare ancient coins and the bronze foot suggest the interests of a scholarly collector and were also fit subjects for melancholy reflection. 'Alas, I desire too much' is written in Greek upon his cap badge.
