The Sultan( Sultan Abdulaziz) liked his work and sent him to Paris immediately, to study under Gustave Boulanger and Jean-Leon Gerome.
Many of his works were oil-paintings based on nature , such as forests, fruits, animals and others.
He would later go on to host many art exhibitions and continued to serve in the army. He died in 1907, of a heart attack.
Here are some of his works:
|Basket of fruits (my personal favourite)|
|Books and nature|
|Sheep in the dark clouds|
