Self-portrait as a Young Man

Bernini Gian Lorenzo
(Naples 1598 - Rome 1680)

The artist produced the self-portrait around the age of 25. The features of the face are in fact very similar to those of his celebrated self-portrait in marble: the face of David, commissioned by Scipione Borghese and completed in 1623. The painting, together with two other works in the Galleria Borghese, the Self-portrait at a Mature Age and the Portrait of a Boy, offer significant testimony to the artist’s work as a painter.
