Abstract

The paper analyzes calligraphic work of Sheikh Muhamed Behaudin ef. Sikirić, an artist from the end of 19th and beginning of 20th century, and provides a translation of his so far unpublished calligraphic teaching license (Bosnian: idžazetnama) from the collection of oriental manuscripts of Mesudija Library in Kaćuni. Based on this document and on unpublished data on the artist, an attempt has been made to define his calligraphic education more precisely. Using comparative analysis of the contents of idžazetnama and of the available artist’s calligraphic inscriptions, the paper tries to explicate, reconstruct and evaluate his artistic work, and to present it to a wider public.
