Mir Emad and Alireza Abbasi

Emad al-Molk Qazvini Hasani (1554-1615), titled Mir Emad, is one of the most famous masters of “Nastaliq” in the history of Iranian calligraphy. He is credited with writing some of the most valuable Safavid manuscripts. He was also a poet, and some of his poems were cited in the works of his contemporaries. Mir Emad's descendants, including his son, daughter, and grandsons were also talented calligraphers. Alireza Abbasi (1558-1628) was a great master of “Naskh”, “Tholth”, and “Nastaliq”, as weII as a gifted painter. He was the official calligrapher of Shah Abbas’s court and was favored with the choicest of public commissions. Alireza designed the great calligraphic inscriptions in the mosques of Shaikh Lotfollah (p102 104) Maqsud Beik (p106), and Royal (pp96-101). The story goes that Shah Abbas, a connoisseur and an avid patron of calligraphy, enjoyed Alireza's handwriting to the extent that often assisted him by holding a lamp while the master was working.

A lifelong rivalry existed between the two outstanding calligraphers. Mir Emad was apparently less of a fighter than Alireza. In 1615, he was accused of being Sunnite an executed, perhaps at the suggestion of Alireza, who wanted to have the monarch’s affections solely for himself. Mir Emad is reportedly buried in the Maqsud Beik Mosque in Isfahan.
