A LARGE QUR'AN FOLIO, BLACK MUHAQQAQ OUTLINED IN GOLD, PERSIA, ILKHANID, 14TH CENTURY.
Size of written surface: 26 x 18 cm; original page: 33.5 x 27 cm; enlarged page: 40.3 x 30 cm.
The monumental and majestic muhaqqaq script of this large Qur'anic folio is reminiscent of the very large pages of the so-called "Five Surahs" manuscript with five lines of text, whose black letters are also highlighted with a fine gold line. The Qur'anic manuscript "of the Five Suras", initially attributed to Ilkhanid Iran by its style and the nisba of the copyist, Tabrizi, was reattributed by Abolalah Soudavar to the Jal'iridesque production of Baghdad, around 1370, for the ruler Shaykh Uways (A. Soudavar, A., Art of the Persian Court, Selections from the Art and History Trust Collection, New York, 1992, cat. 19, pp.50-51). Nevertheless, the same production is formally attested in parallel under Il-Khanid Iran.
