Federigo Baroccio (1528-1612), a popular painter of Urbino, among other things painted the portrait of the young prince Federigo d'Urbino. The child is on a bassinet which is evidently used only for show purposes, as there would be great danger of the child's rolling off. The cover and binder are richly ornamented and give a good idea of the expense lavished on princely infants, at least when shown to the public. The picture is in the Pitti Gallery in Florence. The photograph is by Alinari.
