Osman Hamdi Bey’s Old Man in front of Children's Tombs, Turkey, 1903

Osman Hamdi Bey’s Old Man in front of Children's Tombs is displayed next to Louvre Abu Dhabi’s renowned Young Emir Studying by the same artist. Though the subjects could not be more different (one passive and languorous, the other full of emotion), both works have a common point— created by a Turkish artist trained in France who endeavoured to portray truth and precision through the rendered details.
