Titled on the verso "Rue des Juifs à Scutari" .Marthe Guillain, née à Charleroi le 17 juillet 1890 et morte à Watermael-Boitsfort (Bruxelles) en 1974, est une artiste peintre aquarelliste belge qui réalise également des collages.Autodidacte, son style, évoluant du fauvisme à l'abstraction, a été influencé par ses séjours à Paris, en Union soviétique, à Istanbul et au Congo belge.Üsküdar traditionally known in Italian and English as Scutari (Skoutàrion, in Greek), and in classical antiquity known as Chrysopolis (Greek: , 'Golden City'), is a large and densely populated district and municipality of Istanbul, Turkey, on the Anatolian shore of the Bosphorus.Icadiye Caddesi, the location of the synagogues, is the main street heading inland, right in the center of Kuzguncuk. If you go by minibus or bus, get off at the Kuzguncuk stop, which is right at Icadiye Caddesi.Located in Istanbul's Üsküdar district, the neighborhood of Kuzguncuk has long been populated by the city's Jewish community, though shrinking in number in recent years. The neighborhood is literally sacred for Jews, as for over five centuries its Jewish cemetery on Nakka tepe has been the resting place of buried pilgrims who once dreamed of Jerusalem.Provenance ROPS2 Avenue d'Ecolys5020 Suarlée - Belgique [Attributes: Signed Copy]
