A reader from Italy has been in touch to share news that The Accademia Carrara has acquired a rather fine portrait by Fra Galgario (1655-1743). 

As the museum's press release explains:

The museum has thirty works by the great Bergamo-born master, who spent most of his life in the city, after studying in Venice. The painting has now found its ideal setting, alongside the other works by Galgario, expanding the series of portraits that show off society as it was at the time, with realistic insight and a superb mastery of ornamentation.
