Turkish-Islamic Art in Pre-Ottoman Anatolia
‘The Anatolian Emirates developed a new artistic approach based on the Seljuqs.’
The Anatolian Seljuq authority collapsed as a result of the Mongol invasions. The Anatolian emirates established in their wake, continued the artistic approach of the Seljuqs; then one of the emirates, the Ottomans, developed a new artistic style based on Seljuq art.
