Nella Galleria Berthier di Palazzo Borromeo c’è anche un “Giovine scapigliato”.
È proprio così che questo ritratto di Daniele Crespi viene citato negli antichi documenti di casa Borromeo.
✨
L’artista, tra i massimi esponenti della pittura seicentesca lombarda, ritrae un giovane raffinato con una bellezza elegante, quasi femminea, mosso da una capigliatura fluente.

In the Galleria Berthier of Palazzo Borromeo there is a "Young Scapigliato".
This is exactly how the portrait of Daniele Crespi is mentioned in the ancient documents of the Borromeo house.
✨
The artist, one of the greatest exponents of Lombard 17th-century painting, portrays a refined young man with an elegant, almost feminine beauty, framed by flowing hair.
