In its 600-year lifetime, Ottoman Empire reigned in three continents, all of which were comprised of diverse ethnicities and cultures. Istanbul was the hub of all economic and administrative decisions made regarding the nations living in this enormous empire. Lying on Europe and Asia with the Bosporus between them and being also the capital of Eastern Rome and Byzantine Empires before Ottomans, Istanbul has always attracted continuous attraction from neighboring countries. Many explorers and researchers, among whom were also famous artists, who inquired to learn about daily routines of sultans and the Ottoman culture flocked to the city. Artists who studied and painted Istanbul landscapes, palaces, instances of daily life on the streets of the city and ceremonies, either formal or cultural, had all their experience published in books when they returned to their own countries. These books all had engravings that clearly demonstrate how life was in Istanbul back then. This study aims to examine works of several artists who came to live in Istanbul and produced engravings mainly in 18th and 19th centuries.
