Portrait of Cardinal Marcello Cervini degli Spannocchi

Attributed to Del Conte Jacopino

(Florence 1510 - Rome 1598)

The inventory of 1693 attributed the panel to Raphael. Its authorship has however been subject to extensive discussion, also regarding the identity of the subject, now definitively recognized as Cardinal Marcello Cervini degli Spannocchi (1501–1555); elected pope in 1555 with the name of Marcellus II, he reigned for just 21 days. The painting, executed by a Tuscan master strongly influenced by Raphael’s portraiture, seems to be the work of Jacopino del Conte, who specialized in portraits.
