View of Bebek near Constantinople
Information about author
The only landscape in Jan Matejko's oeuvre. It was painted from life, in the evening, from the window of the palace of his relative Groppler, at whose house the artist stayed during his stay in Constantinople(now Istanbul). A shore of the Bosphorus and boats at sea are depicted in the foreground. In the background are a Turkish-style manor house and a pier with boats.
