About this work

Description

At this time (1855) Janina was the capital of an administrative division of the Ottoman Empire. In 1913 it became part of Greece. In the print, some Albanian men are sitting by the wall and chatting to each other. They wear authentic everyday clothes that mostly consist of a white tunic, a mid-length coat in dark colours with a waistband (to hold the knife) and a skullcap (takke)
