Vasco da Gama (circa 1460-1524)
A half-length portrait to right, with the sitter wearing a breastplate, red-lined fur coat, gold-laced and slashed. He has a blue and gold turban, and around his neck the cross of Commander of the Portuguese Military Order of Christ. This order was awarded to Vasco da Gama by King Emmanuel I as a sign of promotion, in 1507, following his second return from India.
