Portrait of a Member of the Medolago Family

c. 1518
oil on canvas
73.7 x 57.1 cm (29 x 22-1/2 in)
Count Medolago, Bergamo, Italy [1]. Enrico Marinucci, Rome. [2] (Count Alessandro Contini Bonacossi [1878-1955], Rome-Florence); sold to Samuel H. Kress [1863-1955] on 16 June 1938; gft 1961 to Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, n. 1961.9.20. [1] Possibly Count Luigi Medolago Albani [1910-2011], Bergamo. [2] Some paintings from Marinucci's collection were sold at Anderson Gallery, New York, 7-8 May 1923, but this does not appear to be among them. Also not included in Wilhelm Suida, "Italian Primitives in the Marinucci Collection in Rome," Apollo XX (September 1934), p. 122+. It is also not included on a list of paintings included with a letter dated 1 October 1936 from an Enrico Cappiello, offering pictures on behalf of Marinucci to the director of the Wiliam Rockhill Nelson Gallery (Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, curatorial file for Tanzio da Varallo, 1944.2). It is likely that those paintings came from the collecion of Marinucci's uncle, Cardinal Pietro Gasparri [1852-1934].
