Ottoman Figures #2

oil on canvas figures by nadirThese three oil on canvas figures, a barber and street sellers, are by Nadir, date of birth and death unknown. Apart from being cute, at least I find them cute, these kind of pictures are great help for historians. They reflect social life, status, economic condition, dress codes of the era better than anything else.

Dimensions: 24x19, 21.5x16, 21.5x16 cm.
Estimated value: $ 6,000
