About Turkish art

It is believed that the first Turkish Principality was formed after the Mongol invasion of Turkish lands. After the formation of the Turkish Principality, it actively waged war with neighboring principalities, subjugating vast territories of Asia, Africa and the Balkan Peninsula.

Therefore, Turkish culture has developed from the cultural heritage of the Eastern countries, but despite the many cultural differences between these countries, Turkish culture has been able to develop its own and unique style, and leave a large mark on the world cultural heritage.

Turkish architecture is quite diverse, it can be divided into three stages or periods:

Seljuk period (12-13 centuries) – this period is characterized by simplicity and elegance of buildings, refinement of decoration of front doors.

Ottoman period (14-19 centuries) – this period was greatly influenced by the Byzantine culture and building structures of Egypt. the architecture of this period is characterized by majestic domes, vaults and arches that are refined in their style of execution. A striking example of Ottoman architecture is the Hagia Sophia.

Modern period (20th century and our time) – since the beginning of the 20th century, the construction of architectural structures was not financially encouraged by the state, the architectural objects are not mosques and cathedrals, as it was before, but offices, museums and hotels, which were built according to European modern architectural structures that are simple and functional.

With the development of cinematography, Turkish cinema is also developing in Turkey. of course, Turkish films are not as popular all over the world as Hollywood movies, but recently cinema is developing faster and faster, especially for Turkish TV series (serializm.com/turkey/), some of which show Turkish culture in General,customs, customs, etc. The most famous series about Turkey, which is widely loved in Russia, is a Magnificent century.

Since Turkey is an Islamic state, and in Islam it was forbidden to depict portraits of people, animals, women’s faces, etc., this is why in Islam there are no icons with the faces of saints.

Turkish painting developed as a miniature, although some artists still painted portraits, but unfortunately most of them were destroyed. Currently, there are a large number of Turkish artists whose paintings are known all over the world. Turkey gave the world such a direction in painting as-Ebru or “Turkish marbling”, the art of drawing with paints on water, which are then transferred to paper.

Turkish sculpture is very close to Western sculpture, as with the development of the Turkish state,foreign sculptors and students came to Turkey to study abroad.
