Portrait of Gentile Bellini, attributed to Tullio I Lombardo, c. 1500

marble (rock), h 30.7cm × w 22.5cm. More details

Using a few sharply defined planes and no background, the sculptor effectively rendered the stark profile of this older man. The sitter is the Venetian artist Gentile Bellini. Even the precisely described locks of hair appear to be on a single plane. The sculptor used one of Bellini’s own sketches.
