Label Copy

Although best known today for his dramatic narrative paintings, Tintoretto was also an extraordinarily active portraitist and with his workshop painted hundreds of images of the Venetian ruling class. These portraits, however, generally forego the bold style that is the signature element of Tintoretto’s larger works. They employ instead a more subtle approach, as if to emphasize that the viewer’s attention was to be drawn primarily to the sitter and not to the painter responsible for capturing the sitter’s likeness.
