The romantic scenes of landscaping in Persian miniatures were simplified in Ottoman miniature by the reducing detailed landscape scenes to plain backgrounds. Human figures, buildings, and other main elements of the subject predominated. In classical Turkish miniatures, lines are straight, colours are vivid and the style is narrative. Miniature art is known for its strongly-built heroes, simplicity, selection of themes from real life and the powerful concept of colour.

Ottoman Turkey, Costumes, Medjmouaï Teçavir (1910s) Fruchtermann No. 103. Max Fruchtermann, 1852-1918. The most prominent early publisher of Ottoman postcards, at the age of seventeen he opened a frame-shop at Yüksekkaldirim Istanbul. It is hard to underestimate his role in the publishing scene that followed. He was one of the first "editeurs" (if not the very first) to create postcards depicting the Ottoman Empire.
