Turkish Miniatures are the oldest surviving illustrations belong to the Uighur Turks. The eight and ninth century paintings found at Chotcho, there capital in Turfan, are the earliest examples of Turkish book illustrations known. Although numerous wall paintings can still be seen, very few book illustrations still exist. The people in these miniatures, especially male figures, have portrait quality, with their names inscribed below. After these earliest examples, there was almost four centuries of time gap, which no book illustrations survived, until the period of the Suljuks in Anatolia. However the figures seen in Seljuk art still show the tradition of Uighur paintings. The miniatures illustrate a fantasy world of demons, evil spirits and scenes from nomadic life. There are also other Seljuk works in different styles showing evidence of Byzantines influence.

Due to its rich subject matter, longevity, and freshness, Turkish miniature painting of the Ottoman period occupies a special place in the history of Islamic painting. This form of art continued without interruption for nearly four centuries. There are examples of miniature painting which date from the middle of the fifteenth to the beginning of the nineteenth centuries. Artistic trends and tastes are also evident throughout this period.
