François Léon Prieur-Bardin
Sufficient information about the life of French Orientalist Painter François Léon Prieur-Bardin (1870 - 1939) could not be obtained. It is thought to be self-educated about art education. However, the artist who lived in Istanbul between 1890 and 1901 gained fame with the landscapes he made here. Some of his paintings show Preziosi effects. The Istanbul landscapes on which the artist is the subject also have a documentary value for today. Although occasionally few, his paintings are found in auctions.
