ISTANBUL.- Leading collectors of Turkey are sharing their valuable works of art with the society. Collections comprising the masterpieces of Western artists depicting the Ottoman Empire and İstanbul are on display in the exhibition halls of Antik Palace. The exhibition which received great interest with the invitations, seminars and conferences realized with the participation of the esteemed collectors of art, aims sharing of many hidden treasures of masterpieces.

The exhibition highlights the orientalist trend in Western paintings. The works in the exhibition cover a wide period from the 17th to the early 19th centuries.

Orientalism was the defining of the studies on the religions, languages and the histories of the people of the East. Orientalism which specifies the attitudes of the westerners against the World of Islam, comprised all the Moslem Mediterranean countries, being İstanbul, ‘the Gate to the East’, in the first place.

The exhibition realized with the purpose of social sharing of the works of art by famous Orientalist painters who painted the Ottoman Era and the splendid history of our beautiful İstanbul and conveyed them to the present day as documents reflecting the past, can be visited at Antik Palace until 15 February 2016.

The Orientalism Exhibition which reflects the centuries old influence of exotic beauty and historical richness on Europe, welcomes its visitors at the spacious exhibition halls of Antik Palace.

The exhibition which offers the passion for the eye-brightening Oriental living, appearances and architecture of İstanbul and the last three centuries of the Ottoman Empire depicted with paintings as documents within a visual panorama comprises the Works of arts from World famous Western painters such as Antoine de Favray (1706-1791), Jean-Leon Gerome (1824-1904), Amadeo Preziosi (1816-1882), Félix Ziem (1821-1911), Adolf Kaufmann (1848-1916), Leonardo de Mango (1843-1930), Rudolf Ernst (1845-1932), Fausto Zonaro (1854-1929), Alberto Pasini (1826-1899), Germain Fabius Brest (1823-1900), Hermann David Salomon Corrodi (1844-1905) François Leon Prieur-Bardin (1870-1939) and Alois Schönn (1826-1867).

Founders of Antik A.Ş. Nurcan and Turgay Artam, express their gratitude on behalf of the art lovers to collectors who share their invaluable works of art with the society, and add the importance of exhibiting these Orientalist paintings which reflect the Western admiration towards the Ottomans for a period of three centuries and sharing of them with the community. They invite all art lovers to Antik Palace to visit the exhibition and mention that it is a great chance to see these works of art all together in one venue. The sharing of the collections by specific exhibitions let the unseen works of art come to light.

Nurcan Artam says, “I believe that the number of the educatory and informing exhibitions which we see many examples abroad will increase in Turkey, collections will gain more value when they are shared with the public.”
