This work is part of a four-painting series featured in the exhibition, all of which have been created by artists from the Vanmour School. These paintings must surely the work of a talented artist in Vanmour’s studio and often employ the compositions of other Vanmour paintings. This continuous reproduction of the same compositions by Vanmour, or the artists of his school, reveal the extent to which Westerners living in İstanbul demanded works that reflected the Ottoman world. Along with the other paintings in the series, this particular work was exhibited in the “Turquerie” exhibition in Paris in 1911.
