Resistance from conservative elements culminating in an uprising by the Janissaries prompted him to abandon his reforms however. He was overthrown in 1807 and strangled by order of his successor, Mustafa IV. From A series of Portraits of the Emperors of Turkey, 1808.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
