Title: Rustem Pasha Mosque Istanbul
The Rüstem Pasha Mosque (Turkish: ' Rüstempaşa Camii') is an Ottoman mosque located in Hasırcılar Çarşısı (Strawmat Weavers Market) in Eminönü, Istanbul
Gerome made several trips to Turkey and is likely to have visited this wonderful mosque. The painted tile work and the stain glass window in the background are rendered with the greatest attention to detail.
