NORTHERN EUROPEAN RENAISSANCE AND TURKISH IMAGE
This second volume of our series “Scenes from the 16th Century Ottoman Empire” collects
some of the very early illustrations of Ottoman Empire and its people by Northern Artists.
(Netherlandish, Flemish, German, Austrian and Swiss) It consists of 4 main parts with in
every part an art object or an artist. We have given this volume the name of Coecke van der
Aelst because his Customs of fashions of Turks is the main object of this book.

The four objects are accompanied by earlier published articles by different authors.
