9780253325556: Turkish Traditional Art Today (Indiana University Turkish Studies)

This book presents the living arts and artists of Turkey. It is simultaneously an ethnographic inquiry into the nature of art, an introduction to modern Turkey, and a model study of folk art, combining the current theories of folklore, anthropology, cultural geography, and art history. It is also the most comprehensive analysis yet written of a single artistic tradition and the most complete presentation available of the current practice of the great arts of the Middle East, such as the weaving of carpets and shaping of stately ceramics. Glassie ranges widely across media, but concentrates on calligraphy, woodworking, pottery, and carpet weaving. Throughout his focus is on the artists and their theories and practices as well as the art they produce.

From the Back Cover:

Turkish Traditional Art Today presents the living arts and artists of Turkey. It is simultaneously an ethnographic inquiry into the nature of art, an introduction to modern Turkey, and a model study of folk art, combining the theories of folklore, anthropology, cultural geography, and art history. Describing his research in the cities, towns, and mountain villages, Glassie ranges widely across media. He tells of architecture, calligraphy, woodworking, and earthenware, but lays particular emphasis on the brilliant, underglaze-painted ceramics of Kutahya and the rich, piled carpets for which Turkey has been famed for centuries. While searching for the traits that define art and the stylistic complexities that characterize Turkish creativity, Glassie focuses on the artists and their theories and practices as well as the works they produce. The result is an account of the current state of Islamic art and a comprehensive analysis of a deep and lively artistic tradition.

Review:

"This vast work, approaching a thousand pages, with a comparable number of illustrations, is astonishingly absorbing and easy to read, a rich source of cognitive and affective understanding of a culture at once so far from ours and so intimately close to it, whose insights and principles apply to many artistic traditions in many lands... It is Mr. Glassie's concern with the artist's view of truth, his complete indifference to the elegant pretension of word and thought that to one extent or another has plagued Western historians of art since Vasari, and above all his deep curiosity and willingness to learn and listen from the past and from the present, from the scholar and from the artist, that constitute the miraculous elements of Turkish Traditional Art Today Walter B. Denny, The New York Times Book Review "Turkish Traditional Art Today is a proud and triumphant work ... magnificent" The Turkish Times This beautifully produced work examines the traditional folk arts of Turkey ... comprehensive, well-researched, and clearly written" Library Journal "... a work of monumental significance." Oriental Rug Review
