The sitter is a young ecclesiastic from the Fenaroli family of Brescia. This painting was part of a group of four portraits that once were in a palace of the Martinengo family.
At present two of these portraits are in Madrid at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Foundation (1, 2), the other is in a private collection (3).
