oil on canvas, h 128cm × w 101cm. More details

Seventeen-year-old Ottavio Strada is portrayed in an unusual – allegorical – manner. He receives a cornucopia filled with ancient coins from Fortune, while turning away from a statue of Venus. The gold and silver signify not only his future riches, but also allude to his study of ancient coins, a pursuit in which he was trained by his father, the antiquary Jacopo Strada.
