Narrative: Seraglio - the Sultan's palace (Topkapi Palace), was begun in 1462 by Mehmed II and served as the residence of the sultans until the beginning of the 19th century. It was to this palace that foreign ambassadors were accredited, and they were admitted through the Imperial Gate, or Bab-i-Hümayun, mistranslated by Westerners as "Sublime Porte." The Seraglio consists mostly of small buildings grouped around three courts. The most significant buildings are the Çinili Kiosk (Pavilion of Tiles) built in 1472, the Audience Chamber (Arzodasi), the Hirkaiserif, a sanctuary containing relics of the Prophet Muhammad, and the elegant Baghdad Kiosk commemorating the capture of Baghdad in 1638. The Seraglio houses the sultan's treasure and has important collections of manuscripts, china, armour, and textiles. After the abandonment of the Old Seraglio, the sultans built for themselves palaces along the Bosporus, such as the Beylerbey Palace (1865), the lavish Dolmabahçe Palace (1853), the Çeragan Palace built in 1874 and burned in 1910, and the Yildiz Palace, which was the residence of Abdülhamid II, Ottoman sultan from 1876 to 1909. The general effect of the painting is rich and gorgeous. Both, the moon and the sun form a union of light. The full moon is rising at sunset, while the sun, behind the spectator, is reflected on the palace windows of this eastern city. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
