Vespasiano Gonzaga

The Duke of Sabbioneta is portrayed on the model of Roman busts of great commanders. Vespasiano Gonzaga is recognisable not only by his appearence, but also by the winged thunderbolt engraved on the breastplate of his armour, which can also be seen in the decorations of the palaces of Sabbioneto. Around his neck he wears the collar of the Golden Fleece, the prestigious knighthood awarded to him by King Philip II of Spain in 1585. The portrait is the work of a 16th century Venetian sculptor.
