Hilye-i Serif by Mehmed Bahir El-Yesari

mehmed bahir el-yesari hilye-i serif
Although it is on the cheap side, this hilye-i serif by Mehmed Bahir El-Yesari is a good example of the coloring technique used by the artists of the time. It is almost next to impossible to match the colors with contemporary dyes and equipment. Calligraphic style is celi talik and talik with a ketebe plus names of the prophet and four caliphs complete the hilye-i serif as usual.

Dimensions: 80x52 cm
Estimated value: $ 7,500
