Portrait of Tycho Brahe (1546-1601)


Half length portrait showing Tycho Brahe at full face, with thinning dark hair and a full beard with long moustaches. He wears a prosthetic nose [his real nose was cut off in a duel]. Brahe's face is bordered by a white ruff collar and he is dressed in a dark coat with gold buttons. He wears a triple gold chain from which hangs a medallion with a classical head in profile. His left hand rests on a celestial globe showing a cartouche [not legible] and the constellations of Canis major, Gemini and Orion. In front of the sitter is a table with a patterned gold cloth upon which rests dividers, a telescope and an open book, towards which Brahe points with his right hand, index finger extended.

Original: oil on canvas, 1056x826mm. ca. 1620s
