Book Description

‘One of the most striking aspects of traditional Turkish art is the extraordinary profusion of ornamentation. This has taken thousands of different forms, in practically every branch of art, from architectural monuments to minor handicrafts, and particularly in manuscripts. The 18th century emerged as a golden age of flower painting…This book introduces the work of the Ottoman artist Ali en-Nakşibendi er-Rakım, a painter of great distinction who in nevertheless virtually unknown. His flowers show Baroque, Rococo and Empire influence but are infused with a spirit all their own.’
