Timotheus Playing the Lyre before Alexander and Thaïs in the Hall of the Palace at Persepolis

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a captivating 19th century artwork created by the Italian artist Pietro Fancelli. This masterpiece, dated around 1820, showcases a pivotal moment in history as the renowned musician Timotheus performs before Alexander the Great and his lover Thaïs in the grand hall of the ancient Persian palace at Persepolis. The intricately detailed drawing, executed in black chalk, brown ink, and gray wash over black chalk and graphite squared for transfer on two joined sheets of wove paper, invites viewers into the opulent indoor setting of the palace. The columns, adorned with intricate carvings, tower above the figures, while the monochrome color palette adds an air of sophistication and timelessness to the scene. Alexander III of Macedonia, also known as Alexander the Great, is depicted in regal attire, seated on a throne, his gaze fixed on the musician. Thaïs, a beautiful courtesan, reclines on a couch, her expression one of rapt attention as Timotheus plays the lyre. The artist masterfully captures the moment of musical enchantment, as the music transcends the boundaries of time and place. This evocative artwork is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of ancient Persia and the enduring influence of music on human emotion. It is a treasure of the arts, and a must-see for any art enthusiast or history buff. The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. is fortunate to have this exquisite drawing as part of its extensive collection, offering a glimpse into the past and a reminder of the power of art to transport us to other worlds.
