Perhaps we're just imagining it, but this 16th-century Renaissance gentleman possesses a striking resemblance to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

The chap on the left above is the subject of Portrait of a Seated Youth by Georg Pencz, painted in 1544. The chap on the right is the founder of Facebook and the world's youngest billionaire. At least, we think we've got that the right way round.
