Sultan Mahmud II (1784 – 1839)

with one comment

Mahmud II was taught the art of calligraphy first by Gebecizade Mehmet Vasfi Efendi and later by Ustad Mustafa Rakim. He was particularly interested in Naskhi, Thuluth and Jell Thuluth. Several very fine panels written by Mahmud II in Jeli Thuluth are to be see in a number of Istanbul mosques and museums. He died in 1255 H.
