The half-open mouth, the glass eyes staring at the spectators, the finely drawn beard as well as the hollow wrinkles that surround the eyes testify to a captivating realism which is part of the Neapolitan tradition with Aragonese reminiscences. The austere and frontal character of the bust accentuated by the dark clothes contrast with the human expressiveness of the face. This lively portrait with an intense look can be dated to the last decades of the XVI century.
