Count Amedeo Preziosi-? "French officer in Constantinople (Crimean War)", watercolor, 1854/55
On March 28, 1854, the UK and France declared a war against Russia, which became known as Crimean War (CLICK HERE). In April 1854, the English and French troops landed in Turkey; the military campaign in Crimea began in September 1854. This watercolor depicts a scene, in which one of the French officers walks in company of two Turkish women through Constantinople.
Count Amadeo Preziosi (or Prezioci, or Precioci) was born on Malta in 1816. He was active in Constantinople, Turkey and was royal painter to Prince Carl the First of Romania in 1868-69. Prezioci exhibited at the Royal Academy London in 1882. His folk scenes from Constantinople were especially popular and recently reach remarkable prices (up to USD 50.000) at international art auctions.
