A fine watercolour view of Constantinople taken from Bulgarlu above Scutari, in the foreground two men smoking, another walking past with a donkey, a group of four men looking towards the city, the composition framed by trees.

A student of Piranesi, Mayer (1755-1803) was personally employed by Sir Robert Ainslie, British ambassador at Constantinople from 1776-92, to depict views on their travels. A highly talented artist, Mayer was the most accurate delineator of the Near East before David Roberts.
