Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta（1417-1468）是Malatesta家族的成员，里米尼的领主，教会总司令，康多蒂耶罗和艺术赞助人。这个历史人物以他的背叛和对同时代人的批评而闻名。他被教皇皮乌斯二世逐出教会，后者嫉妒马拉泰斯塔的成功和骄傲。他像一枚古钱币一样，以“国际哥特式”的风格出现在这里。他目不转睛，衣冠楚楚。这幅画的几何线条在黑暗的背景下显得格外突出。
Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta (1417-1468) was a member of the House of Malatesta, Lord of Rimini, Captain-General of the Church, condottiero, and patron of the arts. This historical figure is famous for his treachery and criticisms of his contemporaries. He was excommunicated by Pope Pius II, who was jealous of Malatesta's success and pride. He is shown here in profile like an ancient coin, in an "International Gothic" style. His gaze is fixed, and he is handsomely dressed. The geometric lines of the painting stand out from the dark background.
