Intersecting Worlds: Ambassadors and Painters Online Exhibition Tour

Teachers

  • November 24, 2021 / 19:45

Teachers will explore Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Orientalist Painting Collection’s Intersecting Worlds: Ambassadors and Painters exhibition in the digital environment, learning more about the works of art in a guided tour. The exhibition introduces teachers to interesting personalities as they navigate the winding roads of the history of diplomacy guided by art. Ambassadors and painters continue to communicate with us through a silent yet equally rich and colourful language of expression, presented in their reports and letters, and share with us their respective periods, worldviews, travels and experiences, as well as the ceremonies they joined. Participants discover how they can use the teacher's guide books prepared in accordance with the curriculum for Pera Museum collection exhibitions, how they can show their students around the exhibitions, and activities for different age groups.

From two portraits of children…

The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.

Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico. Exactly 47 years from now, before she died in the same city and her beloved Mexico, many things would happen; she’d meet Diego Rivera, become a world-renowned artist, and allow many of her fans to dress like her on Halloween.
