Portrait of a Gentleman
School of Giovanni Bellini, also called Giambellino, Italian (active Venice), first documented 1459, died 1516
The man in this painting holds a slip of paper with another artist's signature, in Latin, and the date: IOHANES BELLI NVS/1488. It was probably added in the late 1500s to make this portrait appear to be by the most famous of Venetian early Renaissance artists, Giovanni Bellini.
