OSMAN HAMD BEY

archaeologist-osman-hamdi.jpg (7886 bytes)

Osman Hamdi Bey (1842-1910) was a distinguished Turkish intellectual. As well as being a famous painter and a successful archeologist, he was recognized for his services as a museologist. All his life he was very creative and productive. He was the founder of the School of Fine Arts (Sanayi-i Nefise Mektebi) as well as being the first man in Turkey to prepare the law of Conservation of Antiquities. Osman Hamdi Bey was recently commemorated on the 77th year of his death and he will always be remembered with esteem.

In brief he was an intellectual who looked forward to the future. His cultural and artistic activities and endeavors were to lead the society towards modernization.

The special interest with which he directed himself all through his life, were based on the education that he received. Osman Hamdi Bey was one of the privileged persons who had the chance of an education in Europe during a period when very few people could speak a foreign language, let alone travel in Europe. He lived in Paris for twelve years and had perfect command of the French language. Initially he was sent to France to study law but Hs great talent and tendency towards art forced him to dedicate himself to painting. He had the chance to study with masters like Jean-Lon and Boulanger. He returned to his country as an artist instead of as a member of the Bar.

Osman Hamdi Bev's father, brahim Edhem Bey was one of the four Turkish students who were educated in Europe. He had studied Geology and returned to Turkey as a mining engineer. He had several appointments as an ambassador and minister and for sometime as the Prime Minister. And Osman Hamdi Bey was introduced to the western culture in his father's home.

osman-hamdi2_s.jpg (9630 bytes)On his return from Paris in 1869, he went to Baghdad to work with Midhat Paa who was the newly appointed Governor of the city. This was Osman Hamdi Bey's first official appointment and lasted till 1871. When he returned to Istanbul, he was appointed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as Assistant Director of Protocol. In 1873 he participated at the Vienna exhibition as the representative of the Ottoman State. In 1877 he was assigned the Directorship of the Istanbul 6th Municipal Office in Beyolu district which lasted for one and a half year. That was his last official appointment after which he decided to devote his whole time to painting.

osman-hamdi3_s.jpg (18555 bytes)In 4 September 1881, Osman Hamdi Bey was appointed as the Director of the Archeological Museum. This was the turning point of his life and he began to work with great energy and accumulation which was very different from his previous efforts. At this time, though the museum had been established for the last thirty years it was very poor as far as material was concerned. In general the museum looked like an antique warehouse. Osman Hamdi Bey restored the museum which was a magnificent building, employed qualified staff and enriched its collection remarkably.

After a short while, being the museum Director he started leading some archeological excavations. The excavations in Sidon in 1887 brought to light the group of sarcophagi, including the Alexander Sarkophagus, the Sarkophagus of the mourning Women and the Lycian Sarkophagus, which are the chief exhibits of the Archaeology Museum of Istanbul. Furthermore there are as famous archaeological places as Nemrut Mountain and Lagina, which increased his reputation. As a result of his practical experiences archeology became Osman Hamdi Bey's second profession. In addition to the directorship of the museum, he accepted the offer of becoming the director of the School of Fine Arts. In this new post, he first reconstructed the building, set up his academic team and on 2 March 1883, the School of Fine Arts opened its doors for the first academic year.

Archeology and museology were new sciences and movements of western origin. Introduction of new trends and activities and their application in the 19th century Turkey were very important steps towards modernization.

osman-hamdi1_s.jpg (13738 bytes)In 1884 Osman Hamdi Bey legalized the preservation of historical, cultural and artistic legacy by the Law of Conservation of Antiquities. This law which brought general regulations for the security of archeological excavations and finds, could also be applied for the future necessities. For the first time with the implementation of this law, the transportation of antiques from the country was forbidden and they were recognized as State Property.

There is no doubt that the subjects taught at the School of Fine Arts are more concrete, tend to direct people much more dynamically towards novelty and modernization as compared to museology. In a period when modem schools were scarce, establishment of a school where architecture, painting, sculpture and engraving were taught is an indication Osman Hamdi Bey's high intellectual level and his foresight.

We must not consider him solely as the founder of the School of Fine Arts but as the pioneer who led the society towards cultural progress.

I have many favorites. Since one has to start from somewhere, why not start with Rembrandt

There are a few I favour, including John William Waterhouse. I have a print of this beautiful painting, called "My Sweet Rose"(a.k.a. "The Soul Of A Rose") from 1908.

I have favorites within favs.  The Brandywine School would be the overall, with certain artists being prime.
Howard Pyle is credited with the founding of the movement.  However, folks like Maxfield Parrish, NC Wyeth, Howard Chandler Christie were the movers and shakers.  Andrew and Jamie Wyeth are also considered part of the "School" as was a friend, and former instructor and neighbor, Isa Barnett.
 
 
 
 
Max Parrish, Cinderella
 
 
Max Parish
 
 
Have to include one of my favorites, and the obligatory Andrew Wyeth pic.
