ALS Paul Paulaki Musurus Bey Turkish Diplomat Artist Poet


Description: Item # 36. An ASL signed by Paul Musurus Bey ( 1840-1927). Paul (Paulaki Musurus Bey was the son of Constantine (Kostaki) Musurus Pasha, long-serving Turkish ambassador to the court of St. James, from 1851 to 1885. Paul Musurus moved to London with his father as a youth and, apart from occasional light, and very junior, diplomatic duties, seems to have lived the life of a dilettante artist and poet. But the undoubted quality of significance of drawings, reflected as they do much of the pervading influences of the day in French and British art, are testified to by the enthusiastic reception of several drawings donated in the 1930’s to the Department of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum, The Ashmolean Museum and The Birmingham City Museum and Art Gallery and several of his drawings are in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. This example of Musurus-Bey’s poetry is written in French. On page size: 5 7/8” x 8 7/8” on a later larger page accompanied with a newspaper clipping of one of his poems. The page is dated 1882, Musurus-Bey would have still been in involved with his diplomatic duties in London.
