Catalogue Note

The view, still recognisable today, is from the Asian side of the Bosphorus towards the Rumelihisarı, the fortress built by Sultan Mehmed II between 1451 and 1452. Associated with the so called ‘Generation of 1914’, Ziya Güran incorporated an Impressionistic style into his art, having studied for five years in the ateliers of Marcel Bachet and Fernand Cormon in Paris.
