Book details

An excursion through the enchanting world of reverse-glass painting with examples from four continents. This catalogue has been prepared for the exhibition Around the World Under Glass, on October 25th 2005, at the Suna and Inan Kirac Foundation Pera Museum.

A certain commonality from one country to another is inevitable in the work of folk artists of a shared artistic tradition. The naive and pure-hearted quality of folk art is born of a common life experience characterized by the lack of education and a life lived on the land in close harmony with nature. Similarities and a shared tradition notwithstanding, the works created by folk artists are richly diverse.

Around the World Under Glass exhibition organized by the Pera Museum is an opportunity to view this startling diversity in works created by reverse-glass painters. The exhibition has come about through the efforts of Neveser Aksoy and includes works from her extensive collection spanning four continents. Also included are works from the Bortacina, Genim and Suna and Inan Kiraç collections. Together they represent an unprecedented and unforgettable opportunity for Turkey and the world.

The approximately 200 reverse-glass paintings selected for the exhibition and catalogue reveal the similarities and differences across geography, and draw attention to the particularly riveting and unusual work of Anatolian reverse glass artists.
