Sakıp Sabancı calligraphy galleries reopened

By Cornucopia TR | February 7, 2011

Having temporarily been forced to vacate its galleries at the Sakıp Sabancı Museum to make way for the Jameel Prize show, the world-class calligraphy collection held there has now returned to its rightful place. Not only is the original selection on display, but new pieces have been added, including works from the painting section. Featuring some marvellous firmans, Qur'ans and pieces by master calligraphers such as Ahmed Karahisarı (see his karalama above), there has never been a better time to go and see this wonderful permanent exhibit. Sakıp Sabancı Caddesi no. 42, Emirgan 34467, Istanbul
