The city of Cairo was 1853/54 led the last stop on a multi-month journey that Fiedler on behalf of the Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm IV. Through Asia Minor, Syria, Palestine and Egypt. During this stay he painted a panorama-like view of the Egyptian metropolis, which he labeled "Cairo 1854". She is now in the Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin. In our painting is a large-scale repetition of this theme, which he made after his return to Trieste. Fiedler chose for this view a wide screen format on which he represented the city, as it presents itself from the Citadel: As almost unmistakable sea of ​​houses, gardens, mosques and minarets. The view is directed to the west and extends over the green strip along the Nile to Giza, where just perceptible lift the pyramids, against the horizon out. The center of the image are the Sultan Hassan Mosque and the expanding front Rumêle Square. The mosque, on the part of those shows where the mausoleum of Sultan is surmounted with its monumental size, the entire city, leaving the buildings next to it almost miniatures of their own will; to characterize the people at Rumêle Square meet the painter at all, only multi-colored lines and dots. Fiedler was not there in his image but the description of life (although he has with the carpet dealer in the foreground genre-like features), but a documentation of the appearance of the city. This includes the Malkafs on the roofs in the foreground (the folded tops that catch coming from the Mediterranean cool north wind, and are designed to lead to the interior of the houses), and the reproduction of the partially ruinous state of individual buildings. The picture was painted in the early hours of the forenoon, to a time of day in which the air is still clear and fresh. The deep, rich blue of the sky will lose only towards the horizon towards its intensity, where it connects to the haze of the soil and the fluidized sand. The oblique sunlight of the morning also promotes the differentiation of light and shade and allows for rich gradation within the prevailing in the city browns. The same view of Cairo was stung by Fiedler in wood and displayed in the book published by Ebers 1879/80 zweibändigem work "Egypt in words and pictures." Literature: Material collection to a Austrian artist lexicon compiled by Rudolf Schmidt, stored in the library of the Austrian Gallery in Vienna.
