The present study analyzes and publishes a portrait of an Ottoman Sultan in the museum's register, entitled "the portrait of Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih". It is preserved in the Store of Islamic Department, Prince Mohamed Ali Museum, Cairo under number (3) and register no. (516). It was drawn on paperboard with watercolors. It is in good condition, and it measures 52î 46 cm. It is published and studied for the first time with its distinctive artistic formation. The problem is that the portrait does not include any dates. Accordingly, the study adopts the comparative analytical approach of the technical composition and design method. The elements of the colors used were identified and thus the date of this portrait could be traced back to the 13th AH. / 19th A.D. century, to the art center in Egypt.
