"Photo Pikos."

Photo Pikos Dupré, Louis. Dupré, Louis. Photo Pikos "Photo Pikos, du Pays de Suli." Paris "Imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, Rue St Louis, No 46, Au Marais." 1825-37
Coloured lithograph " Photo Pikos" from Louis Dupré's " Voyage â Athènes et â Constantinople...". Original hand colour; verso blank; blind stamp of Dupré as issued.
The image shows Photo Pikos in typical Suliote dress with a shaggy cape, necessary for the harsh weather of the mountains of Epirus.
The Suliotes, Christian Albanians had long fought with Ali Pascha, but were to fight beside him when he went against the Supreme Port, and were to be amongst the fiercest fighters of the Greek Revolution.

Dupré, arrived in Corfu at the beginning of March 1820, whilst there he took a great interest in the Suliote heroes living in exile upon the island since Ali Pasha's conquest of the Suliotes in 1804. One of the first portraits he drew was of Photo Picos, who was surprised that Dupré knew his history. Ironically the next portraits Dupré drew were whilst visiting Ali Pasha, in Joannina where Thomas Maitland encouraged Dupré to show Ali his drawings. It is reported that on seeing the portrait of Photo Picos Ali exclaimed "Oh, I know him, He is one of my enemies!" .
Whilst there negotiations were in progress concerning the fate of Parga.
On returning to Corfu, he drew the famous image of Nicolo Pervoli standing by the canon pointing across to the mainland.

Dupré left Corfu on the 23rd of March just a few days before 4000 exiles from Parga were to arrive in the Ionian islands. Bright colour; occasional very light spotting, mainly to blank margins; small wormhole to right blank margin far from image.

Plan of the Immortal victory of Corfu/ Kerkyra Beseiged by the Ottomans.

Plan of the place of Corfu seiged by the infidels between the 25th July and the 22nd August ...1716. "Plan de la place de Corfu avec ses environs, assiegee par les infidels, tranchee ouvert le25em Juillet jusqu'au 22eme d Aout jour de la fuite des ottomans defendue par s.e.le Feldt Marechal comte de Schulembeourg General en chef des armées de la Serme Repque.. de Venise en l'an MDCCXV.." " Nomini Immortali Invict Corcyrae Defensoris." Nuremberg. Homann, Johann Baptist. c1716
Copper engraved plan of Corfu city/ Kerkyra by Johann Bapt. Homann. Original colour, verso blank.
The map shows the siege of the citadel of Corfu by the Ottomans between July 25 and August 22nd 1716, with the island of Vido. The image shows the fortifications and lines of attack. Set within a decorative frame with profiles of the castles in each corner; detailled key to 3 sides the plan set within a second frame. Large decorative vignette of Victory amid cannons with a portrait of Field Marshall Schulemberg, held aloft by angels.

In 1716, Corfu was the scene of one of the fiercest attacks by the Turks. Their forces were said to number 35,000 men and they besieged the citadel by land and sea. The defending forces were commanded by a distinguished German mercenary, Count Schulemberg, who was appointed by Prince Eugene of Austria. After six bloody weeks in July and August 1716 the Turks withdrew from Corfu. The cartouche on a manuscript drawing now in the British Library and probably prepared on the spot, reads:
"The Turks abandoned the Isle of Corfu with the loss of 70 pieces of cannon, 30 mortars, 2000 horses, 1500 buffalos, 1000 oxen, 3000 tents and out of 35000 men there were slain 15000 and prisoners of war 2000."

Corfu tradition has it that their patron saint, St Spiridon, appeared on his donkey accompanied by acolytes, candles in hand, and bringing a great thunderstorm. His appearance so terrified the Turks that they abandoned their encampments forthwith. It is the German cartographer Johann Baptist Homann who best captures the great battle in contemporary maps. The siege of Corfu has been called 'the last glorious military exploit in the annals of the Venetian Republic. Dark impression; bright and clean; cartouche black & white as issued; old ink number to verso
