leave a comment »

Abdülmecid learned the art of calligraphy and received his icazet from Mehmet Tahir Efendi, a faithful disciple and devoted pupil of Mahmud Celaleddin, the founder of his own individual school of calligraphy. Panels written by Abdülmecid in Thuluth and Jeli in the style of Celaleddin are to be found in several Istanbul mosques and museums, particularly in the mosques of Dolmabahce and Ortakoy. He died in 1861 at the age of thirty-eight.
