After Gentile BELLINI , active about 1460; died 1507

Doge Niccolò Marcello

Date: after 1474
Medium: Oil on wood
Dimensions: 62.2 x 45.1 cm
Acquisition credit: Layard Bequest, 1916

The portrait appears to be a copy of a lost portrait. It looks quite like another in the Vatican Gallery. These seem to be identified as Niccolò Marcello on the basis of its resemblence, not actually very close, to a medal in which he is named on the inscription. This medal may in fact be the source for the image, or it may, as the later inscription implies, copy a portrait by Gentile himself. Its date is unknown.
