ETIENNE RAFFORT (FRENCH, 1802-1895)
SULTAN AHMET III'S FOUNTAIN BY THE ENTRANCE TO TOPKAPI SARAYI, CONSTANTINOPLE

OIL ON CANVAS
13 X 18¼ IN. (33 X 46.4 CM.)
Lot Notes
THE FOUNTAIN PORTRAYED IN THIS EXQUISITE OIL IS ONE OF THE JEWELS OF THE TOPKAPI COMPLEX. BUILT BY SULTAN AHMET III IN 1728, IT IS A VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF TURKISH ROCOCCO ARCHITECTURE. THE SQUARE BUILDING HAS A LIGHT ROOF SURMOUNTED BY FIVE SMALL DOMES. ON EACH OF THE FOUR SIDES THERE IS A ESME, OR WALL FOUNTAIN, AND AT EACH OF THE FOUR CORNERS A SEBIL. EACH OF THE ESME IS SET INTO A NICHE FRAMED IN AN OGIVAL ARCHWAY. THE VOUSSOIRS OF THE ARCHES ARE IN ALTERNATING RED AND PINK MARBLE AND THE FACADE IS SPLENDIDLY DECORATED WITH FLORAL DESIGNS IN LOW RELIEF. A CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPH OF THE TEMPLE PERFECTLY ILLUSTRATES THE ACCURACY AND ROMANTICISM OF THE PRESENT WATERCOLOUR.
