Book Description

‘Turks: A Journey of a Thousand Years, 600–1600’ opened at the Royal Academy at the start of 2005 to great acclaim. The Ottoman exhibits, many of them never before seen outside Turkey, are a glorious marriage of refinement and splendour. But ‘Turks’ is about more than the Ottomans. It celebrates the art of three great Turkic empires: that of the Seljuks, who ruled Persia and most of Anatolia; that of Tamerlane, based in Samarkand, which stretched from India to the Mediterranean; and the Ottoman Empire itself. Central Asia has had a profound influence on Western culture that has been ignored for too long. Cornucopia 33 devotes 25 pages to the show.
