Noon in the Caravanserai by Karl Bryullov

The plot for sepia “Noon in the Caravanserai” was an entertaining scene depicting the customs of the inhabitants of the Turkish city.

In the hot noon, in the center of the city, the Turks, raising their bare feet high, washes it by the city fountain; the other, perched on the wall, fell asleep in a cool shadow; next to him, the arap stretched out on the pavement, laying his head on the edge of the sidewalk.

He was warmed by the gentle humor of the artist-observer, the picture is truthful and accurate in the transfer of the national types and architectural appearance of the eastern city. It depicts narrow streets, along which sleepily stepped camels with luggage, low houses, decorated with fanciful balconies, towers of minarets.
