About the Work

The drawings Obj. Nos. 3956 Z und 3957 Z belong to a group of drawings showing figures in oriental garb, traceable back to a journey Gentile Bellini made to the court of Sultan Mohammed II in Constantinople. These two sheets were carried out by members of his workshop after his return. The aim of the depictions was to replicate the exotic figures as faithfully as possible. Rendered exclusively in pen and ink, the subjects are precisely outlined, the interior details executed with parallel and cross-hatching. Despite the interior modelling, however, they have an oddly rigid appearance and give the impression of having been copied.
