This large miniature on vellum of superior quality (it was laid on paper in the late 18th century) was executed in the first half of the 1600s. It shows then 19/20-year-old Francesco IV Gonzaga, the eldest son of Duke Vincenzo I Gonzago, Duke of Mantua, and his wife, Eleonora de Medici.

Francesco was born on May 7, 1586, in Mantua. In 1607, Italian composer Claudio Monteverdi dedicated his opera "L'Orfeo" to him. The title page of the opera bears the dedication "Al serenissimo signor D. Francesco Gonzaga, Prencipe di Mantoua, & di Monferato, etc."
Francesco became Duke upon his father's death on 9 February 1612. He died at Mantua on 22 December 1612 without male heirs. He was succeeded by his brother Ferdinand.
Back on February 19, 1608, in Turin, he married Margaret of Savoy (1589-1665), daughter of Charles Emmanuel I, Duke of Savoy. They had three children, one of whom (daughter Maria) survived into adulthood.
