The Penrose transform is always based on a diagram of homogeneous spaces. Here the case corresponding to the orthogonal group \(SO(2n,C)\) is studied by means of Clifford analysis [see F. Brackx, R. Delanghe and F. Sommen: Clifford analysis (1982; Zbl 0529.30001)], and is presented a simple approach using the Dolbeault realization of the corresponding cohomology groups and a simple calculus with differential forms (the Cauchy integral formula for solutions of the Laplace equation and the Leray residue for closed differential forms).
