Qajar Persian Oil Painting Depicting Courting Prince
This Persian Qajar dynasty period oil on canvas depicts a courtship scene with a handsomely dressed prince presenting flowers to his love. Its style is similar to the works of Muhammad Sadiz of the Safavid and Zand periods. Canvas was relined sometime in the recent past and the stretcher measures 28 by 36 in (71 by 91 cm). Condition is good. There is a small indentation in the canvas noticeable in one of our closeup images. Our primary image was shot without flash, while flash was used in most of our other shots which explains the differences in color and warmth/intensity. We have no details on provenance. Additional images forwarded upon request.
