Hot Renaissance Men

If anyone finds portraits of good looking males from the Renaissance, let me know so I can add them to my list.

Duke d'Anjou, later Henri III of France by Jean Decourt

Nicholas Hilliard, Man Among Flames, 1588

Lord Herbert of Cherbury by Nicholas Hilliard, 1595

George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham

Young Man with Gloves by Titian, ca. 1520


  1. Well this is a very post with a funny angle, I see now I am not the only one fantasizing about a man dead 400 years ago :-)
    I would suggest the picture of the famous Georges Viliers, 1st Duke of Buckimgham. And also another one I like its' called "man with gloves" by italian master Titian.

    1. Oh great suggestions! Thanks! Did I get the right Titian, by the way? He has another portrait of a young man (blond) with cap and gloves.
