This fine portrait was previously attributed to Quentin Massys but it is now thought to have been produced at least twenty years after his death. The sitter is identified as an ecclesiastic by his costume: a rochet with narrow pleats and a fur almuce on his left arm. The panel has been cut at the top and bottom and the hands were perhaps painted by a different artist.
