Portrait of a Young Man
Antonello studied painting with the Netherlandish masters in northern Europe and brought those ideas back to Italy. He was one of the first Italian artists to prefer the use of oil paint rather than tempera because of oil's richer color, and he was one of the first to bring the northern innovation of the three-quarter portrait to Italy. The earliest Netherlandish Renaissance masters had painted three-quarter bust portraits at a time when Italian artists still preferred profile.
