What visual artistic style(s) would have been popular in the port town of Astrakhan
near the year 1560? Links to sample images would be ideal.

I'm making a board game set in 1560AD Astrakhan and I'd like to infuse it with visual flavor accurate for that time and place.
I've googled about, and found sample images from areas that were somewhat nearby in time and space (plus or minus 100 years, within 1000 miles), but those images have wildly differing styles, and I'm having a hard time reconciling them into something coherent for the game.
Are there any representative images of art from that time and place available online? If not, where could I find them?
