Turkish culture blossomed under the rule of Ahmed III. The sultan was fascinated by tulips and organized lavish festivities that lasted as long as the flowers were in bloom. This period, known as the Tulip Era, witnessed many celebrations and was more openly receptive to Western influences. Vanmour saw Ahmed III on various occasions and so was able to give an accurate portrayal of his features.
