Fine Arts

All resources were mobilized in the field of fine arts in Turkey as of the first years of the Republic, towards a more dynamic and progressive production of art by also benefiting from a backlogue of the past. The modernization that accelerated under the leadership of Atatürk, and with the following of the thought and art movements in Europe in a conscious and sensitive manner, paved the way for the creation of the culture and art of the new Republic. In fact, today it is observed that a “Modern Turkish Art” language has been formed which represents Turkey at an international level, in which the individual styles are prominent and in which regional motifs and subjects gain importance. Within “Modern Turkish Art” based on an East-West synthesis the cultural values of the “past and future” also exist by being blended together.
