Does anyone recognize or read this Arabic/middle eastern painting/hand colored print??? Help!

Reply Sun 21 Feb, 2016 04:19 pm
I own a painting (or hand colored print) with what I believe is Arabic written on it. It is glued on to a matting and I cannot see what it looks like from the back, but it looks like there is even more writing in the back of the paper the painting is on. Does anybody recognize what this is or can anyone read what it says?? Any help would be much appreciated Smile

Its pages from a book and appears to be about Sufi Islam. The style appears from the 17th or 18th century, maybe Turk.

This one may be Persian or Turk and it may be worth significantly more that the others. This is one I'd take to a university Oriental/Mid Eastern art history instructor. I think this is the best of the pieces you've shown us.

Your collection is really shaping up and seems like a good 'religious' art collection. The only problem is religious art isn't always the most valuable. But if you like it (and I certainly do), you've done very well.

@bobsal u1553115,
Thank you and yes I do like religious art of all cultures. I find it really interesting. I wonder what it says up top. Im going to try and find someone that can read it, and yeah maybe an art historian could help me. Thank you again!
