Portrait of Vincenzo Viviani (1622-1703)
Viviani is painted at half-length, seated, before a table upon which there is a brass armillary sphere, pen and wooden inkwell, with a sheaf of drawings. His left hand grips the wooden arm of the chair, while the right rests on the sphere, holding brass dividers. He is dressed in a loose green gown, trimmed with brown fur at the collar and cuffs. He wears a white shirt held at the throat with a gold and jewelled clasp. Two volumes lie flat at his right side: the spines are inscribed; "De Maximis et Minimis Geometrica Divinitatio"; and "De Locis solidis altero Divinat...", both works by Viviani. Behind and to the extreme right of the picture is the suggestion of a glass vase on a cabinet. Vincenzo Viviani was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1696.
