A very unusual painting shared with me via twitter:

Posthumous portrait of 6mo Sinbaldo Gaddi post 1564 with black page
& a dog ptd by Maso da Sa Friano. Odd choice in many ways.

[From] a private collection currently on view at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence for a mannerism show.

It’s not that posthumous (after they’ve died) portraits of children were a completely anomaly, but usually the children depicted are older. This is definitely a baby. Also, the pose, the staging, the drapery, and the inclusion of another person (notice he’s wearing mourning clothes) are all odd for this genre.
