Fausto Zonaro (1854 – 1929). From Venice to Constantinople. An Italian Painter to the Court of the Sultan
Fausto Zonaro is best known for the views and scenes of daily life he painted during his twenty-year stay in Istanbul. Counted among the Orientalist painters, he gave an entirely personal interpretation of the Orient, free of any fairytale intentions and closer to the documentary nature of Edmondo De Amicis’ travel reports.
