W.680, Single leaf of a young man with a flower
This single-leaf painting of a young man in a blue robe and red undergarment was produced in Safavid Iran in the eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE. The youth sits in a landscape smelling a flower. Images of elegantly dressed men and women were exceedingly popular in Safavid Iran. They circulated as loose leaves and were collected into albums (muraqqaʿ). The work is painted in opaque watercolor and gold.
