W.671, Album of Persian miniatures and calligraphy


This album of painting and calligraphy was compiled in the late thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE or early fourteenth century AH / twentieth CE, most likely in Turkey. The signed pieces of calligraphy represent nine different Persian calligraphers, including Sulṭān ʿAlī al-Mashhadī, Sulṭān Murād al-Ḥusaynī, Muḥammad Ḥusayn, Niʿmat Allāh al-Mashhadī, Muḥammad Aṣghar, Shāh Muḥammad al-Mashhadī, and Muḥammad Zamān. There are thirty-one paintings, the majority of which are executed in the Safavid style but are attributable to the late thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE or early fourteenth century AH / twentieth CE. They were most likely made in Turkey. The borders are polychrome and marbled gold-sprinkled paper. The brown leather binding decorated with landscape scenes and brushed with gold is contemporary with the compiling of the album.
