The "Portrait of a Bishop" is among three likenesses of the same person by Strozzi. All three versions portray him with identical facial features, such as a moustache and goatee, also known as a Van Dyck beard, and similar expressions, including wrinkles in his forehead and slightly lifted brows. Two of the paintings, including the present work, depict the sitter wearing a doublet, or a man’s jacket, trimmed with a turned down white collar, which does not indicate the figure’s status as a clergyman. A much larger third portrait, however, represents the sitter standing near a mitre, a bishop’s headdress. During this period, artists commonly painted copies of the same portrait for prominent sitters and their families, which was a way to distribute the likeness of famous people.", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, The Suida-Manning Collection, 2017", "Copyright_Type" : "public domain", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "painting", "Creation_Place2" : "Italian", "Department" : "European Paintings", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "Can go up in galleries Need to do research on this piece In great condition (FC:jb 4/9/15)", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2017.1378.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2017.1378.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2017.1378.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2017.1378.tif", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2654", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
