‘…. the city of the Sultans, the Queen of the East, Imperial Stamboul….’ Frances Anne Vane Londonderry, wrote in her ‘A Narrative of Travels to Vienna, Constantinople, Athens, Naples etc’ in 1842. For centuries foreign artists focused on the combination of the shimmering waters of the Bosphorus, the Golden Horn, the Blue Mosque, and the Orientalist turbaned figures of Istanbul producing paintings, watercolours and etchings that paid homage to the historical richness and significance of the city. Jean-Baptise Vanmour was an artist and eyewitness biographer of the 18th century Ottoman Empire. Working mostly for diplomats and their circle he painted historically accurate studies of all aspects of Ottoman life in the multi-national Istanbul. His representations of the 18th century Ottoman world spread across Europe and shaped the image of the Turks, their world and Istanbul for a long time.
