Bare, Naked, Nude: A Story of Modernization in Turkish Painting aimed to reveal the transformation from the Ottoman Empire into the Republican Era and how the few secretly made paintings at the turn of the 20th century created a new perspective for present times.

This life-size portrait of a girl is a fine example of the British art of portrait painting in the early 18th century. The child is shown posing on a terrace, which is enclosed at the right foreground by the plinth of a pillar; the background is mainly filled with trees and shrubs.

Tadeusz Ajdukiewicz discovered the Orient in 1877, touring Syria, Egypt, Turkey, and the Crimea with Władysław Branicki. This experience made a profound impression on him, and he was to continuously revisit Eastern themes in his works for the rest of his life.
