Lorenzo Lotto's 'Young Scholar'  
OK, it's over 40 years too late in date and costume, and the sitter has rather more hair, but this painting does put me in mind of Claude… (He'd also be a rather good Hamlet!) I first noticed him as the cover-boy on my old acquaintance Andrew Pettegree's The Book in the Renaissance (which is very interesting and useful re: Claude's world).
