Lot Essay

Hermann Corrodi gained international acclaim as a painter of Orientalist subjects through his commissions from the British and Austro-Hungarian royal families. He travelled extensively throughout Europe, North Africa and the Near East, exercising his remarkable talent for subtlety in the gradation of colour, shadow and light, evidenced in the present lot. There exists a larger oil version of this renowned composition, depicting the incessant flow of humanity at the nucleus of Constantinople.
