Lot 361 - FIVE OTTOMAN CALLIGRAPHIC EXERCISES (MASHQ) , TURKEY, 18TH-19TH CENTURY


Ink on paper, with lines of black naskh and thuluth scripts.

Note: Practice allowed the calligrapher to determine the size of the script to be used, to try out the pen, to judge whether or not the inkt was of the correct consistency. And to map out the overall visual impact of composition.
It also enabled him to refine the shapes of the letters and overcome any unsteadiness or stiffness in the hand. This was achieved by the repetition of individual letters or group of letters on different areas of the page.
largest: 23 by 35 cm. - smallest: 14 by 21cm.
