Description


The book showcases the array of motifs--floral, vegetal, and figurative--used on Iznik wares, looks at the relationship between non-Moslem communities and the Ottoman empire, and closes with an examination of the rich stylistic heritage that Iznik ceramics have given to Western art. Lavishly illustrated in color throughout, this is a panoramic overview of a spectacular and refined art form.
