Tomorrow we have our Western and Oriental Manuscripts and Miniatures auction, featuring these two large panoramic views of Mecca and Medina, painted around 1840.A few examples of this panoramic view of Mecca have appeared on the open market in recent years, however, paintings of Medina in this panoramic style are notably more scarce. Although Mecca and Medina are often depicted alongside one another in prayer books like the Dala-il al-Khayrat, it is unusual to see them painted on this scale as a set of paintings.Tuesday 10 July | Bloomsbury Auctions | 67 Pall Mall#bloomsburyauctions #pallmall #worksonpaper #fineauction #paintingsonpaper
