Португальский юноша глазами иранского художника 17 века

A Portuguese
Object Name: Illustrated single work
Date: mid-17th century
Geography: Iran
Culture: Islamic
Medium: Ink, opaque watercolor, and gold on paper

The arrival of European traders was soon reflected in the art of Safavid Iran. Male dress, poses from oil portraits, and the depiction of architecture and landscapes were all incorporated into traditional Persian paintings. Here the languid, handsome youth popular in many early seventeenth-century albums appears in the type of costume worn by Portuguese visitors to the court.
