Osman Hamdi Bey’s paintings which are part of the Sabanci University Sakıp Sabancı Museum’s Collection as well as the findings regarding the techniques employed by the artist in these paintings are presented to the art lovers with the ‘Osman Hamdi Bey Beyond Vision’ exhibition.

The exhibition is based on the results of the ‘Scientific Analysis and Conservation of Osman Hamdi Bey’s Paintings’ project which was completed in two years, and aims to inform the guests about the artist’s paint application techniques, the materials he used and the restoration work the paintings have undergone. The stages of the conservation and scientific analysis work are presented in their sequence thereby giving clues as to how the details which cannot be seen with the naked eye in the works of this artist who has a prominent place in Turkish art history can contribute to his art’s interpretation.
