An Old Istanbul District

old istanbul district by fabius brest

Painters loved Orient, its mysticism and its tranquility. This oil on cardboard  painting is by Fabius Brest (1823-1900). Looking at it, one wonders how quiet Istanbul must have been then.

Dimensions: 21x37 cm.
Estimated value: $ 30,000
