More information

This drawing is attributed to Gentile Bellini, the older brother of Giovanni Bellini. Few of his paintings shave survived. In this impressive double portrait, the doge (chief magistrate) and the nuntius (representative of the pope) are depicted in profile, returning each other’s gaze, in an architectural window. The gold details in the clothing show the last traces of the Gothic tradition in which Gentile’s father Jacopo Bellini was trained.
