This dramatically intimate self-portrait announced the arrival of a new talent on the Venetian art scene; Tintoretto painted it when he was just beginning his career. The picture follows the Venetian portraiture tradition of showing the subject's head emerging from a dark background and making the eyes the focus of attention.
