The Pearl of Istanbul

pearl of Istanbul

What could it be? For those who read the previous post Female Portraits in Western Art, the answer would be obvious. No ueber or super power has yet managed to stop an artist from seeing the beauty in human body.

Dated approximately 1880, Druck u. Verlag von A. Felgner in Berlin presents: Die Perle von Constantinopel, the Pearl of Istanbul, with all the elegance and grace she has to offer. The corner decorations and stars were applied to the engraving later.

Estimated value: $ 150
