    Re-discovery of Long Lost Masterpiece

    Carlo Orsi and his rediscovered PontormoA long-standing, art-world rumour that gallerist Carlo Orsi had rediscovered a Pontormo masterpiece has been confirmed. The painting, Portrait of a Gentleman, around 1541-1544, went on show in June at Orsi's gallery in Milan (until 9 July).

    The work was first identified by renowned art historian Roberto Longhi (in Paragone, 1952), who ascribed it to Pontormo, and declared it to be one of his finest works of portraiture. But after Longhi saw it, no-one else was granted access. Based on Longhi's judgement, the painting was subsequently assessed by a number of other experts, however they were extremely cautious in attributing it to Pontormo as they were unable to see it for themselves.

    Now that it has reappeared and can be viewed by anyone, all doubts as to its paternity have been dispelled, and there are no dissenting voices against Longhi's attribution. There is also unanimity as to its dating—between 1541 and 1544—which puts it close to the Monsignor Della Casa in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. This makes it one of Pontormo's rare later works, executed at a time when the artist was consumed by the project for the frescoes for San Lorenzo, which were subsequently lost.
