Resim
Celile Hanım was a very productive painter and as she painted she gave most of her works to her friends. Her paintings of Turkish baths, in particular, were very much sought after. She would give them away under one condition: that they would be hung in the livingroom, not in the bedroom.
Murat Germen, "Celile Hanım", in: Kaya Özsezgin, Celile Hanım, Yapı Kredi Yayınları, Istanbul, 2001, p. 102.
