The Sultan's Garden - The Blooming of Ottoman Art

£45.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Ottoman art reflects thewealth, abundance, and influence of an empire which spanned seven centuries and, at its height, three continents. The Sultan's Garden chronicles how stylised tulips, carnations, hyacinths, honeysuckles, roses, and rosebuds came to embellish nearly all media produced by the Ottoman court beginning in the mid-16th century. These instantly recognisable elements became the brand of the empire, and synonymous with its power. Incredibly, the development of this design identity can be attributed to a single artist, Kara Memi, working in the royal arts workshop of Istanbul. The Sultan's Garden unveils the influence of Ottoman floral style and traces its continuing impact through the textile arts-some of the most luxurious and technically complex productions of the empire. This publication - the catalogue from the 2012 show of the same name at The Textile Museum in Washington, DC - features beautiful photographs of Ottoman embroidery and textiles.

The bottom of the spine is very slightly bumped, but the book is otherwise in excellent condition.
