Biography  
Niccolo Cassana


Niccoló Cassana had attempted to succeed as the official portraitist to the Medici after the death of Sustermans in 1681. Though his attempt was not successful, he later met Grand Prince Ferdinando de’ Medic in Venice in 1688, and soon established a fruitful working relationship with him. The present picture can be related to a number of pictures the brothers produced for the Medici family, like the Portrait of Angiola Biondi, a dwarf in the service of Violante Beatrice of Bavaria (Florence, Palazzo Pitti), which also shows animals by Giovanni Agostino.
