Since its establishment, Pera Museum has presented a variety of Osman Hamdi Bey paintings from Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Orientalist Painting Collection, shedding light on the artist’s passionate relationship with the art of painting. Having brought Osman Hamdi Bey’s works to hundreds of thousands of art enthusiasts, Pera Museum presents its visitors the opportunity to experience his working environment and much-admired painting The Tortoise Trainer, through virtual reality.
A Journey into the World of Osman Hamdi Bey enables the audience to pay a visit to Osman Hamdi Bey’s working space, to analyze in detail the books which inspired his works, his brushes and personal items, and to step into his painting The Tortoise Trainer, where they can look the artist in the eye.
Enriched with numerous precious works from Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation's Orientalist Painting, Anatolian Weights and Measures, Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics and Photography collections, the virtual experience takes place in an imaginary space designed according to the civilian architecture of the period and research on the artist's waterside mansion in Kuruçeşme. Created by Muse VR, the virtual reality experience features objects designed in the light of various visual documents and testimonies available today. Bringing together research-based fiction with historical facts, the virtual space allows the visitors to get to know Osman Hamdi Bey as a painter, archaeologist and museologist.
