1356125340 Anatolian Culture Reflected in The Toile

Art, which has an enormous effect on man and society is a significant part
of the culture at the same time. Rich culture and environmental beauty of Anatolia
which is accepted as the cradle of civilisation have been a source of inspiration for
many artists and have contributed to the emergence of works of art that exceeds national
boundries and reaches universality. To give an example, “Country journeys of the
painters” which was a program launched as part of the art policy of the state in 1938
has been very useful in letting the painters orient towards painting the realities of the
country. Many artists including Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu, Malik Aksel, Turgut Zaim,
Abidin Dino, Nuri İyem and Neşet Günal has reflected the rich Anatolian culture onto
the toile with great success. Even the french painter Ginette Franco has preferred the
Anatolian pheasent as the form of expression and decided to live in Anatolia.
Anatolian people appear with all their naturality and sincerity in the works of artists and
the aesthetic reflections of the realities of Anatolia such as forms of life, the originality
of the embroidery they produce, the environmental beautties of Anatolia, rich folcloric
culture have given a new direction to the art of painting and made it possible for the beauties,
which have been overseen up to know, visible. Art has extended beyond national
boundries towards universality with this magnificient culture reflected onto the toille.
