The artwork created by Italian painter, Raphael around 1513 to 1514 was famous for being looted by the Nazi army when they ransacked the boot shaped country in World War II. It was brought to Poland along with other antiquities and art from Rome, but unfortunately, the painting has not been seen again since 1945.

The identity of the subject has not been identified, but it shows of a young man who is well dressed and filled with confidence, and exhibiting an air of gallantry and intelligence. People have always believed that this was another self-portrait by the artist since the facial structure matches his other illustrations of himself.
