A PAIR of drawings of the famous Hagia Sophia Mosque and environs of the Golden Horn as seen from the Bosphorus in moonlight, in Istanbul, Turkey, each 5 3/4" by 9 1/4" (11" by 14 1/4" identically framed), one signed in white ink at lower right corner "P. (or "G") Azaroff" and dated there 1925. The atmospheric handling, including contrasty light, demonstrates the skill of the artist. Strangely I do not see a listed artist by this name, though the works, always in charcoal/pastel, seem to feature variations of this scene, usually in moonlight. A handful of the drawings have been offered at Travel and Exploration auctions in England and the Continent in the past twenty years. These might have been created for the tourist trade at the time. They are in excellent condition. Found in Dillon, Montana, to which they might have traveled with an early twentieth century tourist.
