In 1856, during his second visit to Constantinople, Ivan Aivazovsky was introduced to Sultan Abdul-Mejid I, who, for his artistic talent, awarded the painter with the Order of Nishan Ali, IV degree. A few years later, the new Sultan Abdulaziz, admiring the works of the master, purchased almost everything that Aivazovsky brought with him and ordered ten more paintings with views of Istanbul and the Bosphorus, which eventually turned into 30 paintings set for the Turkish court. As a sign of special respect, the Sultan presented Aivazovsky with the Osmaniye Order, II degree. The artists works were commissioned in large numbers by the Porte and the Turkish nobility. Aivazovskys exhibitions were regularly held in Istanbul. Significant assistance was provided by the drawing school and the artists workshop, which helped to cope with the abundance of orders.
