A DELIGHTFUL BOOK:
Turquerie: An Eighteenth-Century Fantasy
By Haydn Williams
At the end of the 17th century, the long-standing fear of the Turk in Europe was gradually replaced by fascination. Travellers accounts of the Ottoman lands, translations of works such as One Thousand and One Nights, and the magnificent spectacle of Ottoman ambassadors and their retinues were among the catalysts that inspired the creation of a European fantasy of this world. Haydn Williams shows how the artistic phenomenon known as turquerie manifested itself in the arts across Europe.
