Turkish Women in the Countryside near Istanbul, Jean Baptiste Vanmour, c. 1720 - c. 1737

oil on canvas, h 44cm × w 58cm. More details

The women are all looking up at an apparition of a vague, floating female figure. What story is depicted here is not known. It might be a Turkish folk tale, or perhaps what we see are the hallucinations of women smoking opium.
