Although the panel shape and palette of paintings 09.181 and 09.181.2 are very similar, differences in the hair and beards suggest that the portrait of the man with the mole (09.181.2) is about a generation earlier than the other.
The man with the mole is turned from a three-quarters right position to direct his arresting gaze toward the viewer. His enormous eyes have highlights and are further emphasized by pink paint along the lids. Pink was also used to shade the long nose. His flesh is a warm peach color.
