Despite a difference of 500 years in the creation of Catena’s and Wiley’s portraits, the similarities are striking. Both are three-quarter profiles of young men of their day, set in a distant landscape. The sitters are linked not by social status but by their stillness and intensity of gaze, and by their immediate relationship to the viewer. Catena’s patrons were primarily members of the aristocratic and wealthy classes of Venice, Italy, of which the sitter for "Portrait of a Young Man" was certainly a member. The portrait’s aesthetic appeal derives from the simple, crisp composition; high level of craftsmanship; strong characterization of the sitter; and fluid use of brilliant and contrasting oil glazes.
