When the Ottoman Empire reached its zenith of power and magnificence in the 16th century, the architect Sinan's buildings marked the apogee of Turkish art. Under Suleyman the Magnificent and his successor Selmi II, Sinan designed mosques, palaces, tombs, hospitals, schools, bridges, aqueducts, and baths, some of which are shown here in dozens of color photographs. In his greatest works, Sinan adapted Byzantine and Islamic styles to produce something quite new, and as John Freely establishes here, this artist living outside the European mainstream was nonetheless a true man of the Renaissance.
